Wisden Overview
A quietly efficient wicketkeeper, Johnny Lindsay's career was a stop-start affair. He made his first-class debut in 1933 for Transvaal, but didn't play again for them until 1937-38, his only full pre-war domestic season. In 1946-47, aged 38, he played well enough to win selection as first-choice keeper for the 1947 tour to England. In the early part of the trip he kept superbly on damp tracks, but lost his place after the third Test following two heavy defeats. In all he made 27 dismissals in the summer. He played only three more first-class matches before his retirement in 1948-49. His last game was for North Eastern Transvaal against the touring MCC in the match in which Denis Compton made 300 in 181 minutes out of a total of 484 for 4 - Lindsay did not concede a bye.
