Gary Gilmour 1951-2014 June 10, 2014

'Not an enemy in the game'

ESPNcricinfo staff

Tributes to former Australia allrounder Gary Gilmour, who has died aged 62.

"Gary was a captivating talent and one of the best swing bowlers our country has seen. Gary had the rare ability to single-handedly turn a game and his memory will live on in Australian cricket. Anyone who witnessed Gary in full flight during the 1970s will remember fondly the way he ripped through batting line-ups with his swing bowling."

Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland

    Are there any videos of Gary's bowling? I have seen other former greats in action but not this one. It is always fun to watch good swing bowling.
