Lisle Nagel was a right-arm swing bowler whose career was ended by a neck injury. "I was standing next to him in the slips during a testimonial match in 1933-34 when he turned to tell me something and ricked his neck," recalled Bill O'Reilly. "I never saw him play again." Before then, although he lacked pace he swung the ball considerably. With his brother, Vernon, he played for Melbourne CC and he forced his way into the Test side for the opening game in 1932-33 by taking 8 for 32 against MCC - he missed the previous match as he had hurt his elbow cranking his car and he took his eight-for with his elbow heavily strapped. He took 2 for 110 in the Test and was not played again, and although he was picked for the fifth Test he had to withdraw as he could not get time off work.

Despite O'Reilly's statement, Nagel did carry on playing. He toured India in 1934-35 with Frank Tarrant's side and took 5 for 24 against Sind and 7 for 53 against Maharashtra. In 1939-40 he set a Melbourne district record by taking 86 wickets at 13.45 in the season.

Lisle Nagel was an extremely tall (6' 6") fast-medium swing bowler for Victoria, for whom his twin brother, Vernon, also played. Lisle was chiefly responsible for the dismissal of Douglas Jardine's powerful MCC team in 1932-33 at Melbourne for a total of 60, taking 8 for 32 for an Australian XI. The feat gained him a place in the first Test, but his two wickets cost 110 runs and he was never chosen again, although he toured India with jack Ryder's team in 1935-36. In 1939-40 he established a Melbourne Pennant record by taking 86 wickets for 13.45 runs each.
