Gerald Aste (30 July 1900 – 17 September 1961) was an English born Indian cricketer.[1] He played eleven first-class matches for various teams in India between 1922 and 1936.[2]


Born in Beckenham, South London, England, Aste made his first-class debut in January 1922, playing for the Europeans in the annual Madras Presidency Match. He also played in the fixture in the following four years until 1926, a year in which he played for the Europeans in the Bombay Quadrangular for the first time. He played in the final of that tournament in 1927.[2]

He played twice for the Straits Settlements against the Federated Malay States in 1929 and 1931,[3] before returning to India to finish his first-class career. He played for Sind against the MCC in 1933, and in 1936 played for the Cricket Club of India against Australia and for Delhi in the Ranji Trophy.[2]
