David Ogilvie was a right-hand bat who was easily identifiable because of his flame-red hair and bushy beard. In 1977-78 he hit the headlines after a remarkable season in which he scored 1060 runs (66.25) including six centuries, a record only surpassed at the time by Bill Ponsford and Don Bradman. He was drafted into an Australian side split by defections to World Series Cricket, and in three Tests against India that summer he failed to assert himself. He got a second chance when he was flown to the Caribbean to join Australia's ill-tempered series later that season but again failed to make his mark. Within two years he had faded from the scene.
