Profile

Eddie Fuller was a fast-medium bowler who played seven Tests for South Africa in the 1950s, touring Australia and New Zealand in 1952-53 and England in 1955. His call-up to tour Australasia came on the back of a good domestic season for Western Province, and he did well enough in the Tests, taking 36 wickets on the entire trip. He struggled more in the next two summers, but was still included in the side to visit England, playing in the first and last Tests of a tight series. He took 49 wickets in all, including a best of 7 for 60 against Warwickshire in front of 25,000 at Edgbaston where his movement and bounce was widely praised. In Tests his only five-wicket haul came when he took 5 for 66 (8 for 140 in the match) against Australia at the MCG in his second game.
