Profile

A fast bowler from Western Australia, Ron Gaunt played three Tests for Australia in three different series. He took a wicket in his first over of Test cricket, in Durban in 1957-58, after he was flown in to replace the injured Ian Meckiff. On the 1961 Ashes tour of England, Gaunt took 40 first-class wickets at 21.12 but was only included in the Test side at The Oval. He moved to Victoria mid-career and added one more Test in 1963-64, his final year of first-class cricket. In later years, Gaunt coached Merv Hughes and Tony Dodemaide at Footscray Cricket Club in Melbourne, before he moved to the Gosford region of New South Wales. In 2012, Gaunt died in Sydney at the age of 78.
