ACB pays tribute to the late Ernie Toshack
Australian Cricket Board - 12 May 2003


The Australian Cricket Board (ACB) today extended its deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of former Australian Test bowler Ernie Toshack, who passed away on Sunday night, aged 88.

Toshack, who made his Test debut for Australia against New Zealand at Wellington, in 1946, played 12 Tests for Australia between 1945-46 and 1948, taking 47 wickets at an average of 21.04.

A valued member of the Don Bradman's 1948 Invincibles, Toshack also enjoyed a successful career with NSW, making 48 first-class appearances between 1945-46 and 1949-50 when a troublesome knee forced his retirement.

ACB Chairman Bob Merriman today extended his condolences to the Toshack family. "On behalf of the ACB, I would like to express sincere condolences to the Toshack family, including Ernie's wife Cathleen and daughter Maria," Mr Merriman said.

"Ernie will be remembered for playing an important part in an unforgettable era of Australian cricket as a member of the late Sir Donald Bradman's 1948 Invincibles."
