Samuel Cosstick, died on April 8th., aged sixty, in Maitland, Australia. In the earlier days of Australian cricket, Cosstick was considered the best bowler in the Colonies. He played first for Victoria in 1861, and took part in his last Inter-colonial Match in 1876. He played against the first four English teams that visited Australia, and in 1865, as he was then residing in New South Wales, he appeared for that Colony against Victoria. Cosstick was a Surrey man and was born at Croydon, but as there is no record of his playing cricket in England, it is presumed that he went out to Australia when very young. Cosstick"s fame as a bowler was eclipsed by Allan, Evans, Spofforth and others, but at his best he was a great figure in Australian cricket.
