Wisden obituary

Neville Quinn, the South African cricketer, died suddenly at Kimberley on August 5 at the age of 26. Quinn played for Griqualand West. A left hand medium-paced bowler, he toured England with the South African team in 1929, finishing second in the bowling averages to H. G. Owen-Smith. In the first innings of the third test at Leeds he took six wickets for 92 runs, and for the season headed the South African averages with 65 wickets at 23.89 runs apiece. In a dry summer he found his swerve effective, but could not make the ball get up straight on our turf wickets as he did on matting in South Africa. A moderate batsman he scored only 200 runs in 22 innings. He visited Australasia with the South African team in 1931-32, finishing second to A. J. Bell in the bowling averages for Test Matches with 13 wickets for 512 runs. He headed the bowling figures in all first class matches taking with 42 wickets for just under 24 runs per wicket. Bradman had a high opinion of his capabilities.
