Profile

Cyril Gray, who died on February 20, aged 73, did not find a place in the XI while at Harrow, but he played as an amateur in fourteen Championship matches for Middlesex between 1925 and 1927. A strong driver whose style was not altogether orthodox, he began his county career with an innings of 79 against Worcestershire at Worcester. His highest score was 81 off the Warwickshire bowling at Lord's in 1927, he and E. H. Hendren (156) adding 214 runs in less than two hours. He was a fine golfer and played for England on a number of occasions.
