Claude Jennings


JENNINGS, MR. C. B., who played six times for Australia in the 1912 Triangular Tournament in England, died in Adelaide in July, aged 66. He was South Australian correspondent of the British Department of Overseas Trade and until 1937 secretary of the Adelaide Chamber of Commerce. In 1938 he was appointed a delegate to the Australian Cricket Board of Control. A batsman of considerable ability, Jennings played for South Australia from 1902 to 1907 and for Queensland from 1910 to 1912. During the Triangular Tournament he opened the innings for Australia several times. Although he preferred fast pitches he showed adaptability, and in all matches in that season scored 1,060 runs, average 22.55, with a highest innings of 82.
