1-Charles Bannerman. Right handed batsman. He played in the first three matches designated as Test matches. The first, between Australia and England, was held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in March 1877. He faced the first ball, scored the first run and made the first century in Test cricket. His Test record is 239 runs at an average of 59.75. He could not cope with celebrity status, and gambling debts and alcohol left him impoverished.
