Profile

An allrounder, albeit one who was a bit of a slogger as a batsman, George Gilbert was one of Australia's cricketing pioneers, the first man to lead New South Wales in a first-class match (in 1856) and the first to take a hat-trick in an inter-state game. Born in England, he had played a few games for Middlesex before emigrating in 1852 , and he played for NSW for a decade from that first game and in club matches until 1876.
