Profile

In a career cut short by the ill-health that eventually led to his premature death, Joe Hunter kept wicket for his native Yorkshire, and for England. He debuted for Yorkshire in 1878, and was a first-rate wicketkeeper, although not quite of the calibre of some of his contemporaries. He toured Australia in 1884-85, and played in all five Tests. He kept tidily, and in the second Test helped Briggs put on 98 for the last wicket, an important contribution to an England win in a closely-fought series. By 1888, however he dropped out of the first-class game (replaced in the Yorkshire XI by his brother David), and he died three years later, aged 34.
