Profile

Herby Wade, who led South Africa in all his 10 Tests within nine months in 1935-36, died in Johannesburg on November 23 after a long illness. He was 75. Having captained the Hilton College XI, where H. B. 'Jock' Cameron was a fellow-student, he spent a few years in England, where he played cricket in the Yorkshire League and captained the county at rugby. His experience on English turf and his inborn leadership qualities made him an ideal choice as South Africa's captain for the 1935 tour of England, leaving the talented Cameron to concentrate on his batting and wicketkeeping. It was Cameron's virile 90 in the Lord's Test which helped South Africa to their first-ever victory in England, and his stout resistance with Wade at Leeds in the next Test which ensured a draw and eventual series triumph.
