Tall and powerful, South African allrounder Herbert "Tiger" Lance played 13 Tests. He was a handy strokeplayer in the lower-middle order, and a useful third- or fourth-change medium-fast seamer. He took 3 for 30 in his first Test innings, against New Zealand at Johannesburg in 1961-62. His finest hour with the bat also came at Johannesburg, when he made 44 and 70 against Australia in 1966-67, a match that South Africa won at a canter despite trailing on first innings. In domestic cricket he was a heavy scorer - in 1966-67 he made 729 runs at 66.27 in seven matches.
