Profile

A controversial bowler and successful coach, Wayne Clark was suspected of throwing during his career but Australia were so short of pace bowling during the early Packer years that he played in 10 Tests - successfully too, taking 44 wickets at 28.72. Although he never took five wickets in an innings, he picked up four seven times, including five in the 1977-78 series against India and in both innings at Georgetown later that season. He coached Yorkshire to the County Championship title in 2001, their first since 1968, before moving home to coach Western Australia. He held that position until stepping aside at the end of 2006-07, when he moved into an occasional television commentary role.
