George Ian Murray (born 6 November 1940) is a former Australian cricketer who played a single match for Western Australia during the 1964–65 season. Born in South Perth, Western Australia,[1] Murray's sole match at first-class level came in November 1964, in a Sheffield Shield match against Victoria at the WACA Ground in Perth.[2] The match, which was the first of the season, ended in a draw after four days.[3] Murray, who bowled right-arm fast-medium but batted left-handed, opened the bowling with Laurie Mayne in both innings. He took only one wicket in Victoria's innings, dismissing Ray Jordon, but finished with figures of 2/44 in the second innings.[4] Murray did not play at state level again,[5] with Western Australia's fast bowling stocks already including Mayne, Garth McKenzie, Des Hoare, and Jim Hubble, amongst others.[6]
