At that time, New Zealand was not a test cricketing nation, and in 1914 he moved to neighboring Australia to further his career.

Grimmett played 37 Tests between 1924 and 1936, taking 216 wickets at an average of just 24.21 runs apiece. [4] He took a five wicket haul on debut against England in Sydney in 1925. [5] He became the first bowler to reach the milestone of taking 200 Test wickets, and is one of only four Test bowlers that played in their first test partner after the age of thirty to take more than 100 wickets, the other three being white Dilip Doshi , Saeed Ajmal and Ryan Harris . He took an average of six wickets per match. Many wickets in the last four years de son Test career bowling Were taken in tandem with fellow leg-spinner Bill O’Reilly . Grimmett remains the only bowler with figures of over 200 wickets in fewer than 40 Tests. He has a five-wicket ‘bag’ on 21 occasions, seven times finishing with ten wickets or more in a match.

Grimmett was a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1931, the same year as Donald Bradman . He died in Adelaide in 1980, and was posthumously inducted into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame in 1996 as one of the ten inaugural members.

On September 30, 2009, Clarrie Grimmett was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame . [6]
