A tall and thin right-arm fast bowler, George Bissett played only four Tests, all against England in 1927-28, and did much to help South Africa draw the five-match series from being two down. In the final Test, at Durban, he took 7 for 29 in the second innings. He had toured England in 1924 but a foot injury restricted him to seven matches. His appearances in 1927-28 were his first since that tour.
