Charles Frederick William Hime, who died on December 6, 1940, aged 71, was a reliable batsman and effective medium-paced bowler. Born on October 24, 1869, he was only 19 when he took six wickets for 40 runs for Pietermaritzburg XXII against the first English team that visited South Africa. In January 1896, he scored 62 against Lord Hawke's English team, adding 184 for the second wicket with RM Poore (112). As a result of this he played for South Africa against the tourists at Port Elizabeth; dismissed for 0 and 8, and taking one wicket for 31 runs, he was not chosen for either of the other two Tests. Hime played for Natal until January 1906, when he captained the team against PF Warner's MCC team and took 5 for 18 in the first innings; a keen match ended in a victory to the visitors by four wickets.
