Profile

A well-built brisk medium-pacer, Chris Pringle had one of the most remarkable introductions into international cricket. After one season of first-class cricket in the Shell Trophy - totalling six matches - Pringle was playing club cricket in England when he ambled over to the New Zealand side during a practice session at Headingley and asked if anyone had a spare ticket for the forthcoming ODI. New Zealand were suffering an injury crisis at the time, and Pringle was drafted in, playing two of the matches. With his pace never really sufficient to make him a Test player, he nevertheless was effective in one-dayers. He started his Test career on a high, with 11 for 152 in his third match (including 7 for 52 in the first innings) against Pakistan at Faisalabad, although he later admitted that he had tampered with the ball because he was sure Pakistan were doing it.
