A genial, moustached character, Tom McKibbin was an offspinner with an action so suspect that during the Australians' 1896 tour of England it was written that "there can be little doubt that he continually threw". He escaped being no-balled, and was deadly when his slow-to-medium pace was aided by a damp wicket.
