Profile

Cecil Tristram (Tris) Bennett who died on February 3, aged 75, enjoyed a run of eight consecutive years in the Harrow and Cambridge XI's between 1917 and 1925 and finished as captain at both places. A split hand while playing against Sussex at Hove caused him to miss the University match of 1924. He never really lived up to his youthful promise as a batsman and in 85 innings in first-class cricket - he also played for Surrey and Middlesex- his highest score was 88. Was a member in 1925-6 of the MCC team in the West Indies. A brilliant slip fielder, he kept goal for Cambridge against Oxford in 1925.
