Ossie Dawson was a right-hand bat and an effective medium-pace bowler who toured England in 1947, scoring 1002 runs at 32.32 and taking 54 wickets at 26.07. An athletic man, he opened the bowling in four of the Testsbut lacked the pace to trouble top-order batsmen, whereas he did not possess enough patience to play a long innings. He later appeared in the home series against England in 1948-49 but was not able to reproduce the good form he showed in provincial cricket. He passed away, aged 89, at his home in Umhlang
