Natal seamer Pat Trimborn played in South Africa's last Test before their isolation, against Australia at Port Elizabeth in 1969-70. His match figures - 37.2-5-91-4 - were typical Trimborn: economical, reliable, and occasionally penetrative. He only played four Tests, all against Australia. On his debut, at Durban in 1966-67, he was one of no fewer than six seam bowlers in the South African side.
