TEAMS

JJ Ferris was a deadly left-arm swing bowler who played Test cricket for Australia and England. In his eight Tests for the Aussies, Ferris wreaked havoc alongside Charlie Turner. His first act as a Test player was to bowl England out for 45, at Sydney in 1886-87, when he and Turner bowled unchanged. He later settled in England, for whom he played one Test, at Cape Town in 1891-92. Ferris took 13 for 91 in the match (he took 263 wickets on the tour) and ended up with 61 wickets at the amazing average of 12.70. He was only 33 when he died of enteric fever in Durban in 1900 during the Boer War where he was serving with the British army.
