Primarily a left-arm seamer, Mike Macaulay was a journeyman cricketer who appeared for no fewer than five provinces - Transvaal, Western Province, Orange Free State, North Eastern Transvaal and Eastern Province. He appeared in only one Test, against England at Port Elizabeth in 1964-65, taking 2 for 73 and scoring 21 and 12. He toured England in 1965 but didn't play in any of the Tests, and was forced to retire at the end of the 1968-69 campaign after several seasons dogged by knee trouble. He made a remarkable comeback in 1977-78, aged 38, taking 42 wickets for Eastern Province.
Also: the fastest Indian to 50 wickets, and Yasir Shah's unwanted "double-hundred"
