Profile

Wisden obituary
Herbie Collins, who died in Sydney on May 28, aged 70, took part in 19 Tests for Australia between 1920 and 1926. First appearing for New South Wales in 1912, he was a prominent member of the Australian Imperial Forces team in England in 1919, being captain for much of the programme after CE Kelleway, because of some disagreement, dropped out. During that tour Collins scored 1615 runs, including six centuries, average 38.45, and with slow left-arm bowling took 106 wickets for 16.55 runs each.
