Australian-born Murray Sargent had an odd first-class career. It began at Grace Road where he made 52 against Oxford on his debut in 1951, batting at No. 4, but the bulk of his time with the county was spent playing as a specialist batsman at No. 8. In 1952, his only full season, he scored 178 runs at 11.86 with a best of 29.
He then re-appeared in Adelaide as a 32 year old opener, playing one full season for South Australia in 1960-61 during which time he made 564 runs at 33.17. He started with 0,0 and 1 but repaid the selectors' faith thereafter, and his only hundred came at Brisbane where he cracked 164 against Queensland.
