Mary Beatrice Duggan, who died on March 12, aged 48, played for Worcestershire, Yorkshire and England, whom she captained for several years. She toured Australia with the England teams of 1948-49 and 1957-58 before being given the captaincy, retiring after ending her career in 1963 with innings of 101 not out and 32 and bowling figures of 7 for 72 which helped England to victory by 49 runs over Australia at The Oval and so deciding the Test rubber. She bowled fast-medium left-arm. For ten years before her death she was vice-principal of Dartford (Kent) College of Education. She left £500 to the Womens Cricket Association to assist in the coaching of young women cricketers.
