Profile

At 6ft 6ins, the lumbering Western Australian quick bowler Jo Angel was a formidable opponent on the trampoline WACA surface. It was there that he made his Test debut, in the winner-takes-all clash against West Indies in 1992-93, but after forcing Desmond Haynes to retire hurt by hitting him in the face in his second over, Angel was smacked all round the park by Phil Simmons, who hammered a breezy 80, and Richie Richardson. Angel came back in Pakistan two years later, and was convinced he had Inzamam-ul-Haq plumb lbw in the course of Pakistan's famous, matchwinning, last-wicket partnership at Karachi. He didn't, and his Test career was over that winter. In later seasons his venom was dimmed by a succession of injuries, but he continued as a stalwart for his state until he finally retired at the end of the 2003-04 season, admitting that his "mind was willing but the body not able to cope". He bowed out with 419 wickets, the second highest wicket-taker in Sheffield Shield/Pura Cup history behind Clarrie Grimmett (513).
