Part American-Indian and a beautiful strokeplayer, Grahame Thomas never managed to establish himself in a strong Australian side. He took part in three tours - to New Zealand in 1959-60, West Indies in 1964-65 and South Africa in 1966-67 - and made eight Test appearances, all either in the Caribbean or against England in 1965-66, managing three fifties. At state level he was far more effective, scoring 3992 runs at 46.41 for New South Wales including 229, compiled in searing heat, against Victoria at Melbourne in 1965-66. That summer he enjoyed his best season, making 1171 runs at 58.88, but after touring South Africa the following summer he retired even though he had not turned 30.
