Profile

Australian fast bowler Ernie McCormick, who played 12 Tests just before the Second World War, was, at his best, genuinely quick, but he was constantly plagued by back trouble. He took a wicket with his first ball in Ashes Tests: Stan Worthington, caught behind off the first ball of the 1936-37 Brisbane Test, and in the same match he inflicted Wally Hammond's first Ashes duck. In his first match in England, at Worcester in 1938, McCormick was no-balled for overstepping no fewer than 35 times, 19 of them in his first three overs. He died in Tweed Heads, New South Wales, in 1991.
