Profile

New Zealand offspinner Chris Kuggeleijn is best remembered for one piece of fielding. His first significant act as a Test player, against India at Bangalore in 1988-89, was to take a slip catch to get rid of Arun Lal and make Richard Hadlee the greatest wicket-taker in Test history. Kuggeleijn, whose middle name is Mary, was 32 when he made his debut, but bowling in India is a pretty thankless task for a spinner: he was given only 16.1 overs in his two Tests, and took just the one wicket. After retiring he became coach of Northern Districts, but gave that up to became a teacher.
