Profile

Jock Livington, who died in Sydney on Jan 16 at the age of 77, had one regret. He never played for Australia. He should have done - and if he were playing today he would have done. In the 1940s, one sure way for an Australian to abort a possible Test career was to play league cricket in England, which Livingston did with Rishton. The supreme Australian team which set sail for England in 1948 included one uncapped left-hander - 18-year-old Neil Harvey - but there was no place for Jock.
