Mike Hendrick was a much under-rated seamer - his average of 25.83 is lower than those of Larwood, Snow, Botham, Fraser or Gough, but he achieved nowhere near the fame of that quintet. That owed much to his penchant for the inconspicuous contribution: in 30 Tests Hendrick didn't once take a five-for, and his best figures were 4 for 28 against India at Edgbaston in 1974. But he was a very fine bowler, unstinting in his accuracy and capable of appreciable bounce and seam movement. His finest hour came at Headingley in 1977, when a brace of four-fors helped England regain the Ashes. Appropriately, Hendrick was overshadowed by Geoff Boycott, who made his 100th first-class hundred on his home ground.
