Kenneth Walter was lively opening bowler who made an impressive start to his career at just 18, against the 1957-58 touring Australians. With his fifth ball he claimed Colin McDonald and also dismissed Jim Burke and Richie Benaud. In 1961/62 he was selected for his Test debut against New Zealand - in the same match as Colin Bland and Peter Pollock - and started well, taking 4-63 at Durban. However, he only took one wicket in the second Test at Wanderers and ended with just two caps. He was also an accomplished golfer, winning the President's Cup in 1972.
