Profile

Wisden Obituary
Ted McDonald was killed on the road near Bolton after being concerned in a motor car collision early in the morning of July 22. Born in Tasmania, McDonald went to Melbourne in his youth and became a good fast bowler in Pennant matches. He played once for Victoria against the MCC team captained by Pelham Warner in February 1912 but not until 1919 did he become prominent by taking eight wickets, six bowled, for 42 runs at Sydney under conditions favourable to batsmen, in the first innings of New South Wales.
