Profile

An old-fashioned chunky biffer, Clayton Lambert's five-Test career came in two distinct parts. First he made his debut in the middle order at The Oval in 1991, and it was his preposterous heave off Phil Tufnell's first ball of the third day that kick-started a dramatic West Indian collapse. He was then recalled at the age of 36, again against England, in 1997-98, when he and Philo Wallace clouted Andy Caddick into David Lloyd's bad books. Lambert even made a hundred. But you don't pinch-hit South Africa in Tests, and the following winter Messrs Pollock and Donald found him out, even though Lambert had plenty of experience of playing in South Africa with Northern Transvaal. This time it was terminal. But he wasn't finished with international cricket, and in 2004 he reappeared, aged 42, in the middle-order for the USA but looked his age. He made another surprise comeback in 2008 when appointed coach to the national team.
