Trevor Laughlin was an allrounder who bowled right-arm medium-pace and was a left-hand middle-order hard-hitting batsman. His chance came with the absence of the Packer rebels, but in three Tests - two in the Caribbean and one against England in 1978-70, he struggled and never looked likely to get a recall once the schism was repaired. He did, however, stay in the picture for the one-day squad where he was more productive in six outings. He played club cricket in Scotland and Lancashire in 1976 and 1977.
What makes this innocuous-seeming bowler so difficult to handle?
