TEAMS

Born in Ireland, brought up in England, Thomas Kelly emigrated to Australia in 1863 when he was 19. His first match was for George Parr's touring side in 1863-64, and he appeared regularly for Victoria for the next 17 seasons. He made two Test appearances, in the second Test in 1876-77 and in the only match in 1877-78. A capable right-hand batsman, Kelly was regarded as one of the finest point fielders of his generation. He is also credited with being the first man to wear a blazer in Australia.
