Profile

Wisden Overview
Tall and brooding, Dave Renneberg overcame an early lack of control to become a genuinely fast, accurate opening bowler. Selected for the 1966-67 tour of South Africa, he made his debut partnering Graham McKenzie in the first Test at Johannesburg and went on to play in all five Tests, taking 11 wickets at 48.00. He kept his place in the home series against India the following winter, and took 5 for 39 in the first Test at Adelaide but was dropped after the third Test of the four-match series. He toured England in 1968 without playing in any of the Tests, taking 41 wickets including a career-best 8 for 71 against Essex. He retired at the end of the 1970-71 season at the age of 28.
