Profile

Wisden obituary
Morris Sievers, who died in a Melbourne hospital on May 1 following a heart attack, aged 56, played as a fast-medium bowler and useful batsman for Victoria from 1934 to 1941. He took 92 wickets for the State at a cost of 35.81 runs each and hit 1,540 runs, average 28.00. In 1936-37 he played in three Test matches for Australia against G. O. Allen's England side, heading his country's averages with nine wickets for 17.88 runs apiece. He achieved his best performance in his third Test when, on a glue-pot pitch at Melbourne, he dismissed five batsmen for 21 runs in the first innings. Australia won the game by 365 runs and as they also triumphed in the next two Tests, retained The Ashes after losing the first two fixtures of the series.
