Ransford was a very fine left-handed batsman and a brilliant outfielder for Victoria between 1903 and 1927. He would have played many more Tests if he had not been one of the six players who withdrew from the 1912 England Tour when the Board refused to appoint Laver as manager. In 1938 Ransford defeated Don Bradman in a ballot for the position of Melbourne Cricket Club Secretary.
