Profile

Arthur Gordon Chipperfield, who died in Sydney on July 29, 1987, aged 81, played 14 times for Australia in the 1930s and toured England twice and South Africa once. His selection for the 1934 team to England came as something of a surprise, following only three first-class innings. He was then 28, but 152 for Northern Districts at Newcastle against Jardine's 1932-33 MCC side had given notice of his ability, and with 84 against Queensland on his d├ębut for New South Wales he furthered the good impression already made. In England, he did not enjoy the best of health, but he finished the tour with 899 runs and an average of 40.86, having shown himself as a batsman who, while essentially a front-foot player, possessing a sound defensive technique, could when the occasion demanded hit hard and score at a good pace. He was an uncommonly good slip fielder and a useful bowler of leg-breaks.
