TEAMS

George Parker, who died in Thredbo, New South Wales on May 1, 1969, aged 69, was plucked from the Bradford League to play two Test matches for the outclassed 1924 South Africans in England- Born in Cape Town, he had been in England four years but had never played a first-:lass match before he was given a trial against Oxford. He took four wickets and had four catches dropped, though there was barely four hours play. The South Africans, desperately short of bowling, put him in the team for the first Test at Edgbaston. He took 6 for 152, including five on the opening day. "He bowled himself to a standstill," said Wisden, "and became so exhausted that he had to leave the field." In the Lord's Test, when England scored 531 for 2, he took the only two wickets to fall - Hobbs and Sutcliffe - for 121. But he never played first-class cricket again and eventually settled in Australia.
