Wisden obituary

Robert McLeod, who died on June 14th, will be remembered in England as a member of the Australian team of 1893. This was his first and only visit to this country. He proved himself a fairly good allround cricketer but it cannot be said that he came up to the reputation he enjoyed at home. In the course of the tour he scored 638 runs with an average of 17 and took forty-seven wickets for something over 24 runs apiece. On this record he was hardly good enough for a representative Australian team. However, he played a very creditable part in the memorable match against the MCC in which Lyons made his great score of 149. Following on against a balance of 181 runs, the Australians set the MCC 167 to get. Up to a certain point the Club looked to have an easy victory in prospect, but in the end they were only saved from defeat by Attewell's defence, wanting 14 runs to win at the finish with two wickets to fall. McLeod in this innings bowled better than on any other occasion in England, taking five wickets in nineteen overs for 29 runs. His better known brother came to England in 1899 and again in 1905. He was born on January 19th, 1868.
