Andrew Hudson will always be remembered for his monumental nine-hour 163 on debut, in South Africa's first Test back, against Ambrose, Patterson and friends in Barbados in 1991-92. He was the first South African to make a century on debut, a feat that was not emulated until Jacques Rudolph scored 222 not out against a rather friendlier Bangladeshi attack in April 2003. A devout Christian, a thoroughly decent bloke and a Prince Charles lookalike, Hudson was on the wrong end of an infamously maniacal send-off from Shane Warne at Johannesburg in 1993-94. His average, above 40 for a long while, slipped steadily and was as low as 33 when he played his last Test, against Pakistan in 1997-98. He tended to thrive when the going got tough, most notably with an outstanding 80 when South Africa were put in by India on a juicy Durban track in 1996-97. Nobody else passed 35, and Hudson's 80 was more than the whole Indian team got in their second innings.
