Trevor Chappell was a nuggetty right-handed batsman, useful medium-paced
bowler and a brilliant fine cover fielder. A star schoolboy cricketer and a
member of Australia's first family of cricket in the 70s and 80s; being the
younger brother of Ian and Greg Chappell, much was expected of him. He made his debut for South Australia in 1972-73, before relocating to Western Australia in 1976-77 and again to New South Wales in 1979-80. He also joined World Series Cricket and played in the Lancashire League. It was with New South Wales that Trevor played his best cricket and solid performances including a career best 150 against Western Australia led to his selection in the 1981 tour of England.
While he had only moderate success in his three Tests, he was more of a success in limited overs cricket where he scored 110 for Australia against India in the 1983 World Cup. Unfortunately for him, he is most remembered for his involvement in the infamous underarm delivery, which he was instructed to bowl by Greg Chappell against New Zealand's Brian McKechnie. After retiring from first-class cricket in 1986, Trevor Chappell played several seasons of Sydney grade cricket with North Sydney and coached the Gordon Women's Cricket Club and was subsequently engaged by Sri Lanka as a fielding coach and had a spell as Bangladesh's national coach.
