A middle-order batsman, Arthur Ochse made his Test debut the day after his 19th birthday - the youngest South African Test debutant - against England at Port Elizabeth, retaining his place for the second match , but he did little of not in either game. He played on three other first-class games, all for Transvaal - one in 1891 and two in 1895. He died on the Western Front during Germany's spring offensive in 1918.
