The South African touring team to England, 1935. Herby Wade, the captain, is third from the left in the middle row.
Herbert Frederick Wade

(14 September 1905 in Durban, Natal – 23 November 1980, Inanda, Sandton, Transvaal) was a South African cricketer who played in 10 Tests in 1935 and 1935-36.[1]

A middle-order batsman, Wade captained South Africa in every Test that he played in, including the series in England in 1935 that South Africa won 1-0 with four Tests drawn.

After leaving Hilton College, where he was a contemporary of his predecessor as South Africa's captain, Jock Cameron,[2] Wade played for Natal from 1924-25 to 1936-37, with a top score of 190 against Eastern Province in his second-last game.[3] He captained the side from 1930-31 until his retirement, and in his career he was captain in 61 of his 74 first-class matches.

His younger brother Billy also played Test cricket for South Africa, after Herby had retired.
