Wisden obituary
Laurence John Nash, died in hospital in Heidelberg, Victoria, on July 24,1986, aged 76. He played in two Test matches for Australia, both at Melbourne: the fifth Test of 1931-32, in which South Africa were dismissed for 36 and 45 on a sticky, and the fifth against England in 1936-37 which Australia won to retain the Ashes. A right-arm fast bowler, not tall but powerfully built, he made the ball awkwardly and got his first Test after taking seven for 50 for Tasmania against the South Africans, his best-ever figures. He took four for 18 and one for 4 but not play for Australia again until he was a surprise inclusion for the decisive match against G. O. Allen's team, the series being level at two Tests a piece after Australia had been 2-0 down. He had upset the Englishmen with his lifting deliveries when taking two for 21 and two for 16 for Victoria against MCC, and in the Test he bowled fast and well, taking four for 70 as England failed to avoid the follow-on and one for 34. In 22 matches, seventeen of them for Tasmania, he scored 953 runs, with an average of 28.02 and one hundred, and took 69 wickets at 28.33. He was famous as an Australian Rules footballer.
