Profile

George Lancelot Tapscott, died at Kimberley on December 13, 1940, aged 61. A hard-hitting batsman, he scarcely fulfilled the promise given in an innings of 106 for Griqualand West against Natal in March 1911. In the following December, by brilliant hitting he scored 111 in seventy minutes and 60 for the Rest of South Africa against Transvaal; but he failed to gain selection for the South African team that toured England in 1912. When the England team under J. W. H. T. Douglas visited South Africa in 1913-14, Tapscott played in the first Test match, but scored only 4 and 1, and was not called upon again, though he continued to bat and bowl with considerable success for Griqualand West until 1923, when he gave up first-class cricket because of knee trouble. His brother, L. B. Tapscott, also played for South Africa.
