Alan "Froggy" Thomson, a fast bowler who delivered the ball off the wrong foot, was heralded as the great white hope when picked to play against England in 1970-71 after taking 9 for 181 for Victoria early in the tour. But the reality didn't match the hype, and in four Tests he took 12 expensive wickets. The reality was that he wasn't quite as quick as he had been built up to be. His other claim to fame was that he took the first wicket to fall in one-day international cricket - Geoff Boycott caught by Bill Lawry for a 37-ball 8. That was Thomson's only wicket in his only ODI.
