Gary Gilmour: Former Australia all-rounder dies aged 62

10 June 2014 – Sydney – Former Australia all-rounder Cricketer Gary Gilmour has died at the age of 62.
He shone brightest in 1975, taking 6-14 with his left-arm swing bowling as England were bowled out for 93 in the World Cup semi-final at Headingley, and then hit a match-winning 28 not out.
Gilmour took 5-48 as West Indies won the final at Lord’s, and also took nine wickets in an Ashes Test that summer.
He struggled with ill health in recent years, and ex-team-mates helped raise money for a liver transplant in 2005.
He died at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital from various complications following that transplant.
Born in Waratah, Gilmour had a carefree attitude to training and hit a century on his debut for New South Wales, but his international career only spanned 15 Tests and five one-day internationals between 1973 and 1977.
He never hit the heights again after recording figures of 6-85 and 3-72 in that Ashes Test at Headingley, when he outshone star pace duo Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson.
