Profile

Brendon Bracewell was one of four brothers who played first-class cricket, and as a right-arm fast bowler he was picked to tour England in 1978 as an 18-year-old on the strength of three first-class matches. He made an immediate impression in his debut at The Oval where he removed Graham Gooch and Mike Brearley in his opening burst, and finished the three-Test series with nine wickets. But injuries quickly took their toll on his slight frame, and he played only three more Tests over the next seven years before retiring early. His last hurrah came when surprisingly selected to tour Australia in 1989-90 - it was sadly inevitable when he broke down after one game. In retirement he ran the Northern Cricket Academy in the Bay of Plenty.
