Fielding Position


Although tall for a wicketkeeper, Ron Saggers was considered stylish by his contemporaries and was among the top flight of Australian 'keepers. Coming to England in 1948 as understudy to Talton, he played in the Headingley Test, taking three catches, and then in 1949-50, with Tallon unavailable, he was the senior wicketkeeper in Hassett's team to South Africa. He played in all five Tests, effecting 21 dismissals with 13 catches and eight stumpings. In 77 first-class matches - he represented New South Wales from 1939-40 to 1950-51 - he took 147 catches and made 74 stumpings, including ten dismissals (seven in one innings) for New South Wales against a Combined XI at Brisbane in 1940-41. A useful right-handed batsman, he scored 1,888 runs with an average of 23.89, his one century being his 104 not out against Essex in 1948 when the Australians put on 721 runs in one day.
