Grahame Corling was a right-arm fast-medium bowler whose seemingly limitless stamina compensated for his lack of inches. He was picked for the 1964 England tour after one full domestic season, and he surprisingly played in all five Tests with moderate success, taking 12 wickets at 37.25. A poor domestic season in 1964-65 put him out of international reckoning, and after two more productive seasons, his form fell away dramatically and his last state appearance came in February 1969 when he was still only 27.
