Glen Hall was a legspinner who made a sensational first-class debut in 1961-62 when he took 9 for 122 in the first innings for South African Universities against Western Province - he finished with match figures of 13 for 146. But thereafter he only appeared irregularly, and his only Test outing came at Cape Town in 1964-65 when he took one wicket against England. His career was over before he was 30, and he committed suicide in 1987 aged 49.
