ANDERSON, DAVID JOHN, who died of cancer on June 17, 2005, aged 65, was a nimble left-handed batsman who played regularly for Victoria in the early 1960s. He started as a studious-looking bespectacled opener, then switched to the middle order and contact lenses; either way, Anderson had the ability to play fighting and sometimes lengthy innings, including a century against the South Africans in 1963-64 and a six-hour 136 to thwart Tony Lock at Perth a year later. Anderson worked for the Commonwealth Bank for 40 years and rose to be company secretary.
