Simon Davis, a right-arm fast-medium in-swing bowler, made his only Test appearance against New Zealand in 1985-86, although in three seasons he did add play in 39 ODIs. He cut his teeth with two summers in Minor Counties cricket at Durham (England) in 1982 and 1983, and on his return to Australia in 1983-84 made his debut for Victoria. Quickly labeled as a one-day specialist, more so after his one undistinguished Test outing, his form for his state tended to argue again such pigeonholing. What was not in doubt was that he was an appalling batsman. In 48 first-class matches he managed 98 runs, 26 fewer than his total of wickets.
