Test recognition came late to Grahame Chevalier - he was almost 33 when he made his debut, against Australia at Cape Town in January 1970 - and it was a brief glimpse of the big time. He performed admirably, taking 2 for 32 and 3 for 68 as South Africa won by 170 runs, but was dropped in favour of John Traicos for the second Test. At the end of that series South Africa were cast into the international wilderness. His first-class career also started late - he was almost 30 when he first played for Western Province - and he finally retired in 1973-74. Chevalier was a capable slow left-armer and a genuine No. 11 batsman.
