Wisden obituary
William Shalders died at Cradock, Cape Province, March 18. Griqualand West XI: Transvaal XI; played for South Africa in Test matches v. England and Australia. Was a member of the teams that came to England in 1904 and 1907. Without being one of the stars of the famous South African side in 1907, Shalders was a very useful bat. He played an innings of 108 against Hampshire, and came out sixth on the list for the whole tour, getting 747 runs in 22 matches, with an average of just under 22. His best scores in the three Test games were 31 and not out 24 at the Oval. For the 1904 team he had an excellent record, scoring 842 runs and averaging 27. As his biggest innings was 81 his figures meant very consistent work.
