BEVAN, HUBERT GEORGE, died on June 15, 2005, aged 72. Hugh Bevan was a left-arm fast bowler for Western Australia with an ungainly action but sharp pace and a dangerous inswinger. He gained a regular place in the state side in the early 1960s and came close to Test selection after Alan Davidson retired, but was not fully fit when he played for an Australian XI against the 1963-64 South Africans, and went wicketless. Since he had a long delivery stride and drag, he then struggled with the new front-foot no-ball law, and retired. Bevan was a state selector for 22 seasons between 1971 and 1993; in 11 of those Western Australia won the Shield.
