Profile

Dashing right-hand batsman Godfrey Cripps was a true globetrotter in an era when travel was not common. He was born in India, educated in England (at Cheltenham), played his cricket in South Africa and died in Australia. In 1892-93 he averaged 39.20 as Western Province won the Currie Cup at their first attempt, a year after he played his only Test, against WW Read's England side at Cape Town (he scored 18 and 3). He was vice-captain of the South African side on their first tour of England in 1894, scoring 394 runs at 14.59.
