Richard Hadlee: This was a publicity shot for the 1986 Test series in England. I was playing at Nottinghamshire at the time and David for Leicester, so we knew each other pretty well. David had become a bit of a nemesis for New Zealand bowlers in recent contests between our sides. It was going to be my job to eliminate him with my firepower, reduce his shot-making effectiveness and ensure he scored some blanks on the scoreboard, so to speak. It was a memorable tour for us; we won at Trent Bridge, scoring the winning run off a no-ball, one that David, as it happened, threw on purpose - our first series win in England.

Heave ho

Beefy has a ciggy

Daryl and Simon cuddle up

Nine and done

No courtesy, no pants

A hundred in Harare

Leap of faith

Last nail in the coffin

Two short

Crease occupation

A divine visitation

Pipped at the post

Fanning the flames

Booted out

Full metal racket

Muskets at dawn

To Kandy, chop chop

A lift for Vishy

The flight of Icarus

Another wet day at Headingley

Telling off the toffs

Out, damned stump

Vandals stopped play

The bowler's Holding, the stumps are flying

Pidge goes down low

The upstart and the king

Paradise regained

No. 264

In through the slamming door

Catch as catch can

The fall of Sir Garry
