Profile

George Tribe had the ability to mix up chinamen with orthodox left-arm spinners, and with his disciplined batting and brilliant fielding at short leg he was a true allrounder. His early career was stifled by WW2 but as soon as normality returned he forced his way into the Victoria side, taking 40 wickets at 19.02 in 1945-47, his first season. He was picked for the first two and last Tests of the 1946-47 Ashes series but failed to make an impression and was discarded. The final Test was his last match in Australia.
