Wisden obituary
William Moule, a judge in Australia, died in Melbourne in September, aged 81. He played for Victoria, and in 1880 was a member of the Second Australian team that visited England, with WL Murdoch as captain. He scored 75 runs in six 11-a-side matches and took four wickets for 69 runs. Moule played at The Oval in the hastily arranged first match between fully representative sides of England and Australia and proved a valuable substitute for the Demon, FR Spofforth, who was indisposed. Moule did by far the best bowling for Australia, three wickets for 23, in a total of 420 and when Australia followed-on he helped Murdoch in a last wicket stand which saved the innings defeat and enabled the Australian captain to finish not out 153, one more than WG Grace scored for England. All who played in the match are dead now.
