Profile

One of only three first-class cricketers produced by the dominion of Newfoundland, Jack Munn was a useful left-arm bowler and stylish bat who played first-class cricket for Oxford University in 1900 and 1901. As a bat he was equally strong on either side of the wicket, and he was a smart field, usually at mid-off.
