Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has mourned the loss of Herbert Roy “Tiger” Lance (70) who died on Wednesday following complications weeks after being involved in a car accident.

CSA CEO Gerald Majola said: “South African cricket mourns the loss of Tiger Lance in such tragic circumstances.

“He was an outstanding all-rounder for his then province, Transvaal, and as a member of the team that white-washed the Australians in 1970.

“He was both a powerful cricketer and a powerful personality and was a legend in his own life-time. He was also a first-class hockey and football player.

“Tiger was always a most valued VIP guest in CSA’s Presidential Suite at the Wanderers during international matches in recent times, and we are shocked and dismayed at his passing in these tragic circumstances.

“CSA extends its condolences to his family and friends at this sad time and South African cricket’s flag is now at half-mast in tribute to him”.

He played 13 Tests against New Zealand, England and Australia between 1961 and 1970, scoring 5 half-centuries along the way. He was also a useful seam bowler and one of many outstanding fielders produced by South Africa in this period.

On the soccer field he represented Mayfair Rangers as a full-back in South Africa’s first professional league.
