Ike Travers was a lower-order left-hand bat and left-arm spinner who hit a dramatic run of form in the 1900-01 Sheffield Shield, taking 21 wickets in two games for South Australia which included an analysis of nine for 30 when he rolled over Victoria for 76. The following year he was picked for the Fifth Test against England as a late replacement for the injured J. V. Saunders. He bowled only eight overs, taking one for 14, and never played for Australia again. He did continue in the Sheffield Shield: thereafter his bowling declined but his batting improved. In retirement he became a well-known coach and was reportedly instrumental in bringing Don Bradman to South Australia in 1935. Travers thought Bradman's presence would help counteract the growing popularity of tennis and suggested that his salary should be subsidised by up to £750 a year.
