Profile

Claude Carter was a left-arm spinner who played ten Tests between 1912 and 1924. South Africa were a poor side in those days, and Carter was never on a winning team in a Test. But he was particularly effective on matting, and he did take a couple of six-fors: against England at Durban in 1913-14, and against Australia at Johannesburg eight years later. His first-class career spanned 26 seasons - he took 5 for 17 on his debut against Transvaal in 1897-98 aged 16. Carter also played for Cornwall for a number of years.
