Ron Pratt, one of two brothers who played for Surrey during the successful 1950s, died on June 1, aged 49. A left-hand batsman, off-break bowler, and slip fieldsman, he joined the staff in 1948 and made his debut in 1952. His one century, against Cambridge University, was made at Guildford, and at Hastings in 1956 he took six catches in the match against Sussex.
PRATT, RONALD C. E., who died on June 1, aged 49, played for Surrey from 1952 to 1959. A tall left-handed batsman who played in spectacles, he could never get an assured place in the very strong side of those days and finally left to take a job in insurance. His best performances were 90 against Kent at The Oval in 1953, when he and Clark put on 250 in four hours for the fourth wicket, and 120 against Cambridge University at Guildford in 1956, on which occasion he helped Stewart to add 255. A fine slip, he caught six catches against Sussex at Hastings in 1956. His brother, D. E. Pratt, also played for the County.
