ELLIS, JOHN ALBERT, who died on October 17, 1994, aged 80, played in 22 matches for Queensland as an opening bowler on either side of the war, taking 71 wickets at 32.11. In another era he might easily have played for Australia, but he was already past 30 when he was picked for the Australian XI against MCC at Melbourne before the First Test in 1946-47, and he made no impact on Hutton and Washbrook.
