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, Wade played for Natal from 1924–25 to 1936–37, with a top score of 190 against Eastern Province in his second-last game. 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.
