Profile

One of the great fielders who sparked the post-war revival of South African cricket, Russell Endean, died in England, aged 79. Although he made his debut as a wicketkeeper, Endean took the bulk of his 41 catches in the outfield, often as a part of the offensive ring that supported Hugh Tayfield's extraordinarily accurate off-spinners.
