Profile

At his best Shaun Tait was one of the quickest bowlers in the world, but his best was seen only in the short formats for Australia, and even then only for a short while. A brutal bowler with a shoulder-strong action, Tait's body found the workload too tough in the long form and played only three Tests, and was done with first-class cricket by the age of 25.
