Profile

Neil Mallender received his big chance late in life, and seized the opportunity wonderfully well. Selected for England at the age of 30 to play against Pakistan on a seaming Headingley pitch in 1992, his was the epitome of a "horses for courses" selection. He took 5 for 50 and eight wickets in the match (the best figures by an English debutant for nine years), helping to win the game and thereby ensuring his selection for the final Test of the series. He found conditions harder at The Oval, but stuck to his task well on a good batting track. It was felt that he would struggle on Indian pitches and he was discarded before the tour to India and Sri Lanka, a decision that Richie Benaud, among others, described as "disgraceful."
