David Lewis had already made his first-class debut for Rhodesia - albeit as a full substitute - by the time he arrived at Oxford University as a 21-year-old in 1949. A middle-order batsman, he only broke into the side regularly in his final year - 1951 - when he won a Blue. While at university he also played for Oxfordshire and represented the university at rugby. He returned to Rhodesia and was for the next 13 years an ever-present in the side, captaining them for almost a decade. In 73 matches for his country he scored 3254 runs at 30.69 including eight hundreds. After retiring he remained in the game as an administrator, becoming a president of the Rhodesian board.
