Australian swing-bowling allrounder Gary Gilmour has died, aged 62.

Gilmour died on Tuesday at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

The left-armer played 15 Tests and was renowned for snaring figures of 6-14 against England in the 1975 World Cup semi-final.

In 2002, Wisden ranked it cricket’s best one-day international bowling performance.

The then 23-year-old also claimed 5-48 in the final of the inaugural World Cup, which Australia lost to the West Indies.

‘Gus’ Gilmour underwent a liver transplant in 2005, when his former captain Ian Chappell led a band of former teammates in raising money for the procedure.
