Biography

An Old Blundellian, Frederick Cumming was the top scorer, with 38 runs, in Great Britain’s first innings total of 117 against France in 1900. He was the only batsman dismissed by the same bowler in both innings ([Arthur MacEvoy]). At the time of the Olympics, Cuming was a member of the Castle Cary team that made up most of the Devon & Somerset Wanderers XII. He also played for Exeter and Bradnich, and between 1900-03, played for the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), although he never played in a first class match.
