Profile

Charles John Eady, died on December 23, in Tasmania, aged 75. Of exceptional build, six feet three inches tall and weighing fifteen stone, he excelled in Tasmanian club cricket, but during his one visit to England in 1896 he failed to reveal his powers either as batsman or bowler. He scored only ten not out and two at Lord's in the First Test, but showed to advantage with the ball, on that occasion taking four wickets for 69 runs in 32 overs. Ill health handicapped him and in the whole tour his appearances were limited to 16 matches in which he scored 290 runs, average 13.17, and took 16 wickets at 25.8 runs each. For Tasmania against Victoria at Hobart in January 1895, he made 116 and 112 not out, but was best known for his 566 scored out of 908 in less than eight hours for Break-o'-Day against Wellington in March 1902. For Tasmania against Victoria at Melbourne in 1895 he took eight wickets in an innings for 35 runs and all ten wickets for 42 for South Hobart v. East Hobart in January 1906.
