An accurate offspinner, Evans made spasmodic appearances for Australia in the early 1880s without any real success - in all he took seven wickets at 47 in his six Tests. It wasn't for the want of accuracy: Evans could land the ball almost wherever he wanted to, and away from the game he had a reputation of being a kangaroo shooter of a very high professional standard. He toured England once - in 1886 - but by then he was past his best. For his state, however, he was often devastating.
