Who is Brent Palfreyman?

Brent Avis Hardcastle Palfreyman is a former Australian first-class cricketer who played for Tasmania.

Palfreyman never played Sheffield Shield cricket, his six first-class appearances all came against foreign touring sides. On his first-class debut against the Marylebone Cricket Club in 1966, Palfreyman was bowled by David Brown for six and didn't bat in the second innings. He also went for 34 from four overs of medium pace bowling in the first innings and took a catch to dismiss David Allen .

He had to wait another five years to represent Tasmania again at first-class level and it was once more against the touring MCC. In the first of two matches, he fell victim to Peter Lever then Derek Underwood, for 3 and 20 respectively. His second appearance was for a Combined Tasmanian XI but the match was ruined by rain and only 47 overs were possible, although he managed to catch to dismiss Colin Cowdrey.

The following summer he was picked in the Tasmanian team to play the World XI. Against a bowling line-up consisting of players to the calibre of Gary Sobers, Tony Greig and Bishan Bedi, Palfreyman made his highest first-class score of 30 before being dismissed by the Indian spinner.
