Profile

Buckenham, Claude Percival, died on February 23 after a short illness at his home in Dundee, aged 61. Born in Surrey on January 16, 1876, he went to Alleyn School, Dulwich, but became associated with cricket at Leyton and played first for Essex from 1899. Tall and rather sparely built, Buckenham bowled very fast with a good high delivery and might have made a greater name but for his constant misfortune in seeing slip catches missed. Because of weak support in the field Buckenham often proved expensive and, in 1905 his ninety wickets cost over 32 runs apiece. Then for six seasons he ranked as one of the deadliest pace bowlers in England. Most successful in 1911 when securing 134 wickets, he was perhaps at his best in 1910 when he dismissed 118 batsmen at an average cost of 17.66. From 1905 to 1911 he took 828 wickets at less than 23 runs each, and in the course of his county career, which closed in 1914, his record was 1,152, average 25.30.
