Gordon Melluish, who died at home at Bushey Heath, on April 14 in his 71st year, was a very good slow left-arm bowler and useful right-hand batsman, and played for Essex (under J. W. H. T. Douglas) in four matches in 1926; during the Second World War he turned out for Northamptonshire. His real metier, however, was good-class club cricket : from 1928 until 1970 he played in more than 300 matches for MCC against clubs and schools; and he appeared, also, for the Incogniti, Gentlemen of Essex, Cryptics and Hampstead.
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
