Basil D'Oliveira (4 October 193119 November 2011) was a South African-born English cricketer.


  • If you told me I was nearer to 40 than 35 when I first played for England in 1966, I would not sue for slander.
  • Our cricket was completely uninhibited by tactical thoughts or any other subtleties. We were never coached, all our practice came from playing in the streets of Signal Hill, where we lived, and some of us would get hauled off to jail by the police if we were caught. Playing in the street was an offence for us.
