TEAMS

Augustus Bernard Tancred, eldest member of the well-known South African brotherhood, died at Cape Town on November 23rd, after an operation. He was born at Port Elizabeth in 1865, and educated at St. Aidan's College, Grahamstown. For about ten years he was undoubtedly the finest batsman in South Africa, and in club cricket met with remarkable success, his best remembered feat being to score 132 and 103 not out for Eclectic v Union at Pretoria in 1896-7. For South Africa against England at Cape Town in March, 1889, he carried his bat through the innings of 47 for 26, being the only player to reach double-figures against Briggs, Ulyett, and Fothergill. His defence was very strong, and he was a good field at point. In 1894 he was asked to visit England as a member of the first South African team, but was unable to do so owing to the claims of business.
