Andrew Hudson: RHB b. 17/3/65 Hudson is the only player ever to score a test century for South Africa on debut. (Wessels did the same for Australia.) Hudson's poor statistical profile belies his beautiful strokemaking and exquisite timing -- a sign of the temperamental problems which haunt him. He plays every stroke well, but often fails due to poor stroke selection; driving out- side off is often his downfall. As a fielder he has good hands and a good arm, but is a little slow, and suffers costly lapses of concentration.
