TEAMS

Captain AW `Dooley' Briscoe MC, whose death was reported in a Johannesburg newspaper as having occurred in the Abyssinian campaign, at the age of 30, batted well for Transvaal. Against the Australian team that visited South Africa in 1935-36 he made 60 and 18, 21 and 11 for his State, but in the second Test match his 15 and 16 were not good enough to retain his place in the side. His efforts were somewhat similar when the M.C.C. team, captained by W. R. Hammond, toured South Africa in 1938-39. Briscoe then scored 42 and 38 not out for Transvaal and for Combined Transvaal 2 and 12 not out, but, given a place in the second Test, he was out for 2. In Currie Cup matches he played innings of 191 and 140. Awarded the M.C. for gallantry at Huberta and Ionte, he fell when again acting very bravely, regardless of danger. Bruce Mitchell and R. E. Grieveson - so well-known in South African cricket - were in action with Briscoe.
