An Anglo-Pakistani, Duncan Sharpe was an aggressive right-hand batsman and was also an agile wicketkeeper. He played in only one series, against the Australians in 1959-60. In the first Test at Dacca he top-scored in both innings with 56 and 35. After this series he did not represent Pakistan again. He emigrated
to Australia in 1960 and played for South Australia in the Sheffield Shield between 1961 and 1966.
After the tragedy of Phillip Hughes' death, this match showed that cricket and life will continue to go on. This time Test cricket dug in and got through to tea.
