Frank Douglas Ahl (24 November 1908 – 3 May 1967) was a South African-born English cricketer: a right-handed batsman, right arm bowler and occasional wicket-keeper who played 35 times for Worcestershire between 1931 and 1933.
Born in Potchefstroom, Transvaal, Ahl never really succeeded at county level, despite being a force in club cricket. His highest first-class score was a mere 43, while he picked up only 13 wickets, his best bowling being 4-44 against Yorkshire in June 1933.
He died after collapsing on the golf course at Stanwell, Middlesex, aged 58.
Famous quotes containing the word frank:
“Are sailors, frequenters of fiddlers greens, without vices? No; but less often than with landsmen do their vices, so called, partake of crookedness of heart, seeming less to proceed from viciousness than exuberance of vitality after long constraint: frank manifestations in accordance with natural law.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
