Profile

Dave Gregory, a bearded, gritty, middle-order batsman, was Australia's first captain, at the helm for their first three Tests. He didn't achieve much with the bat, making only one score of note - 43 in defeat at Melbourne in the second Test of 1876-77. He led Australia in England in 1878 where he failed to cope with wet wickets, averaging 11. In his five Test innings, Gregory batted at Nos 2, 4, 9, 10 and 11. He played for New South Wales, a distinction shared with four of his brothers and three of his nephews, and was latterly honorary secretary of the state side.
