Profile

Graeme Beard was a real utility allrounder - a middle-order batsman who could bowl either medium-pace seamers or offspin - who was picked for Australia's tour of Pakistan in 1979-80 on the back of a good Sheffield Shield season. He played in all three Tests, taking one wicket and scoring 114 runs. In the third Test at Lahore he scored 39 and 49. He was a surprising choice for Australia's 1981 tour of England where he played little. He retired in 1982 to concentrate on his job with the Australian Workers' Union.
