TEAMS

Gerald Mordaunt, who died on March 5, aged 86, played for Oxford against Cambridge from 1893 to 1896, being captain in 1895. He got his colours at Wellington when 15 and was in the XI from 1888 to 1892, captaining the side for the last three years. A free-scoring batsman, specially skilled in off-side strokes, he hit 264 not out in four and a half hours for Oxford against Sussex at Brighton in 1895, a match which yielded 1,410 runs--at that time an English first-class record. He was a magnificent fieldsman anywhere. In 1894 he made two appearances for Gentlemen against Players and also played in the Lord's match the following season. He visited America with Lord Hawke's team in 1894 and between 1895 and 1897 took part in 16 matches for Kent, his highest score for the county being 81 not out against Surrey at The Oval. He and R. H. Raphael won the Public Schools Racquets Challenge Cup in 1891 and he represented his University in the long jump against Cambridge in 1896.
