Fredrick Nell or D.F. Nell Played at Darrawell Club in Hatton (above photos)
He Capt. Sri Lankan Country 11 against MCC /England in 1964
We think he played for St josephs between 1937 (Fred Perera year) & 1939 (Hector Perera year)- before war in 1941-42
Stan & I (Patrick) would like find score cards for D. F. Nell-bowling and batting if possible? (please email info@eLanka.com.au )
