Alexander was educated at Harrow School where he captained the school cricket team in 1861. Later that year he began his university studies at Trinity College, Cambridge. Two years later he made a single appearance in first-class cricket for Cambridge University against the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) at Fenner's. In a match which the MCC won by an innings and 6 runs, Alexander ended Cambridge University's first-innings not out without scoring, while in the MCC first-innings he took the wicket of Charles Lyttelton to finish with figures of 1/14 from five overs. He was last man out in Cambridge University's second-innings, scoring 3 runs before he was dismissed by George Wootton.
