Profile

Tall and tanned, bespectacled and analytical, John Buchanan was an unlikely choice as Australian coach in 1999. A teacher by trade, and a one-time university lecturer, his first-class career never progressed beyond seven Sheffield Shield appearances for Queensland in 1978-79; so following in the footsteps of Bob Simpson and Geoff Marsh was never going to be easy. But Buchanan had already been written into Australian folklore as the man who finally delivered Queensland their first Sheffield Shield title in 1994-95, and at one stage his record as national coach read Played 15 Won 15 - you can't do much better than that.
