David Sincock was a decent enough chinaman bowler who could turn the ball to good effect but often with insufficient control. He had an excellent debut, taking 6 for 52 against New South Wales at Adelaide in 1960-61, but thereafter struggled for consistency. Nevertheless, he played three Tests, although without any real success. Sincock once told Gideon Haigh that his early retirement was brought about by the repetition of the game ... he could not see much point in trying to dismiss a batsman again if he had already got him out.
