Wisden obituary
GADSDEN, WILLIAM BELL, who died on March 18, 1995, aged 84, was a South African medium-pace bowler who took eight for 64 for Natal against Transvaal on his first-class debut as an 18-year-old in 1928-29. After a match return of 7 for 47 against Border, he was selected for the tour of England but did not make the trip, apparently because his father said he was too young. Gadsden was included in the squad for the Third Test at Durban against England in 1930-31, but did not play. He played only nine first-class matches in all, but his record remained impressive: 35 wickets at 16.82.
