Profile

Murray Goodwin is a diminutive and sometimes destructive player who can bat anywhere in the top four. His formative years were spent on the bouncy WACA wickets in Perth, and left him a predominantly back-foot player who cuts and pulls the pacemen with impunity. His light feet and willingness to use them make him equally adept against spin, and he is quick and alert in the field. Goodwin was born in Rhodesia, where he returned after his family had emigrated to Australia while he was still a youngster. But his wife could not settle in Zimbabwe, and Goodwin went back to Australia after the England tour of 2000, thus ending a Test career that, despite just 19 games, placed him in the upper echelons of Zimbabwe cricket history.
