Profile

Cecil Maxwell made a reputation as a fine wicketkeeper and hard-hitting batsman when in the Brighton College XI from 1929 to 1931. Captain in the last year, he distinguished himself by heading the batting figures with 1,037 runs, including six centuries-the highest was 180 not out against Lancing-average 69.13 and helping in the dismissal of 35 batsmen. He later played occasionally for Nottinghamshire, Middlesex and Worcestershire and twice appeared for Gentlemen v Players at Lord's. Most of his cricket, however, was with Sir Julien Cahn's XI, with whom he toured Denmark, North America and Bermuda, Ceylon and Malaya and New Zealand. His biggest innings was remarkable. Against Leicestershire at Nottingham in 1935, he hit 268 out of 398 in three hours ten minutes, registering four 6s and forty-four 4s. He and F. C. W. Newman put on 336 in two hours ten minutes for the seventh wicket.
