Profile

Sydney Burke was a right-arm fast-medium bowler who made a dramatic debut against New Zealand at Cape Town in 1961-62, taking 11 for 196 in 81 overs. Surprisingly, he was made 12th man for the next Test and then discarded. His second - and final - Test came three years later against England at Cape Town when he went wicketless. He managed the South African Universities side which toured England in 1967.
