TEAMS

HAD he been born into another era, Alec Marks, who died on July 28, might have won himself a wider fame. Making his debut for NSW in 1928-29, he played in 33 matches for the State up to 1936-37 and made 1837 runs at 36.01, with three centuries, including 201 against Queensland at Sydney in 1935-36, when the hostile Eddie Gilbert was in the opposition. Marks, a brilliant left-hander, hooked the aborigine bravely and repeatedly. He came closest to the Australian team when the 1930 touring side was picked, McCabe narrowly edging him out of consideration. Born in Brisbane on December 10, 1910, Alexander Edward Marks became the centre of a cricketing family, for his brother-in-law, Max Ward, played twice for NSW, while his sons, Neil and Lynn, both made high scores for the State, bordering on Test reckoning like their father.
