Ian Sinclair was an offspinner who played only 15 first-class games in three complete seasons (over half of them at Christchurch) including two Tests against the 1955-56 West Indies tourists. He won his place on the back of good performances against Central Districts and then West Indians (where he took 4 for 73), but New Zealand were heavily beaten in both matches and Sinclair took only one wicket. He played three more first-class games in the following season with little success.
What makes this innocuous-seeming bowler so difficult to handle?
