The chinaman bowler Lindsay Kline represented Australia in just 13 Tests, nine of them overseas where he was notably successful (31 wickets at 15.35). He took a hat-trick in his second Test, in Cape Town in 1957-58, but is best remembered for facing the last ball of the first tied Test, against West Indies at Brisbane in the classic 1960-61 series. He also denied West Indies for 100 minutes as Australia held on for a draw at Adelaide in the same series. It was his last act in Test cricket.
Also: the fastest Indian to 50 wickets, and Yasir Shah's unwanted "double-hundred"
