TEAMS

Louis Anthony Stricker, a former South African Test batsman, died at Cape Town on February 5 at the age of 75. He was born at Kimberley on May 26, 1884, and represented Transvaal in domestic cricket, scoring an innings of 101 for them at Pretoria in 1909-10 against the M.C.C. touring side, when he and J. W. Zulch shared an opening stand of 215. He played in four of the Tests against England that season, and was a member of the South African side in Australia in 1910-11. In his first match on Australian soil, against South Australia at Adelaide, he scored 146, and repeated this score in a minor match later on. He visited England in 1912, when he took part in the Triangular Tournament, but he had only a moderate tour, his highest score being 99 against Hampshire at Bournemouth. Altogether he played in 13 Tests for South Africa and scored 342 runs at an average of 14.25.

Wisden obituary
Louis Stricker played as an opening bat for Transvaal and took part in 13 Tests for South Africa against England and Australia between 1909 and 1912, but he failed to reach fifty in any of them. For Transvaal against HDG Leveson-Gower's MCC team in 1910 he (101) and JW Zulch (176) scored 215 together in two hours and 20 minutes, which then constituted a record for the first wicket against a touring side in South Africa.
