Profile

Rugby educated, Leland Hone came from a well-known Irish cricketing family and was chosen to tour Australia under Lord Harris in 1878-79 after two first-class appearances (both for MCC against the universities). Primarily a middle-order batsman who occasionally kept wicket, when it became clear that Harris's side lacked a regular wicketkeeper, Hone was drafted in, making his third first-class appearance in the only Test against Australia at Melbourne. He was the first player to represent England without first playing for a county. He played four more games on the tour, one (again for MCC) in 1880 - picking up a pair - and that was that. His eight first-class appearances came on three grounds - Lord's (3), Melbourne (3) and Sydney (2). He later played for All Ireland.
