Profile

Wisden obituary
Henry Promnitz played twice for South Africa, against England in 1927-28. Like bowlers of more modern times, such as Iverson of Australia and the West Indian, Ramadhin, his spin was difficult to fathom, the off and legbreaks being frequently misread. Also like Iverson and Ramadhin, he was a poor fielder, which may have accounted for his playing in only two Test matches. In the first of them, at Johannesburg, he finished England's first innings with five for 58 in 37 overs after the score at one time had been 230 for one. In his second Test, at Cape Town, he took three for 56 in 30 overs in England's second innings. His eight Test wickets included Hammond, Sutcliffe, Ernest Tyldesley, Wyatt and Stevens. Between 1924-25 and 1936-37 he played at different times for Border, Griqualand West and Orange Free State, taking 150 first-class wickets at 23.80.
