A solid domestic medium-pacer, Ian Brayshaw's finest hour came in October 1967 when he took all ten wickets against Victoria, only the third ten-for in Sheffield Shield history. His 10 for 44 at Perth came from 17.6 overs - this was in the days of eight-ball overs - and his scalps included Bill Lawry, Bob Cowper and Keith Stackpole. After retiring he became a respected coach, was director of cricket at Kent CCC, and was also an author, co-writing books with various former players, most notably Back to the Mark, his 1974 collaboration with Dennis Lillee.
