Lindsay Richard Tuckett, who died in June, aged 78, played for South Africa against England in one Test match in 1914. Though best known as a bowler, he helped to establish a world batting record in 1925-26 when, playing for Orange Free State, he shared in a three-figure stand for the last wicket in each innings against Western Province. In the first innings he and L. G. Fuller put on 115 and in the second F. Caulfield helped him add 129. Known as Len, he was the father of Lindsay who played nine times against England in the Tests of 1947-48 and became President of the Orange Free State Cricket Union and Test Selector.
