Wisden Cricketers' Almanack obituary

JUNOR, LEONARD JOHN, who died on April 6, 2005, aged 90, was (and remains) Australia's youngest first-class cricketer. Len Junor played for Victoria against Western Australia in January 1930, at 15 years and 265 days old. A thrilling and impetuous young batsman, he failed to mature, and played just eight matches in all, none of them in the Sheffield Shield, and averaged 22. In 1996, making his first visit to the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 40 years, Junor admitted: "I didn't have enough brains to realise that the bowler up the other end was a pretty smart fellow."
