Default World\'s oldest surviving first-class cricketer dies

Frank Shipston, the world's oldest first-class cricketer, has died on the eve of his 99th birthday.

Shipston, who was born in 1906, played 49 matches for Nottinghamshire between 1925 and 1933, scoring 1183 runs at 18.48. His best season was in 1932 when he made 461 runs at 35.46, primarlily as an opener, although his two first-class hundreds, both made that season and both unbeaten, came from the middle order. He completed one full season as a first-class umpire in 1956 before becoming Nottinghamshire's coach from 1957 to 1966.

Shipston became the oldest surviving cricketer on the death of Western Australia's Ted Martin in 2002.

So now that he is dead, who is the present oldest surviving first-class cricketer? Boycott's mother?
