Jackie Hendriks was a tall, cheerful, wicketkeeper as well as a capable lower-order batsman. Initially a deputy to Gerry Alexander, he made his Test debut against India in 1961-62 where he top scored with 64 despite a broken a finger. He had to wait another two years before he regained his place from the impressive Deryck Murray, and then after three matches, he was hospitalised when struck by a Graham McKenzie bouncer at Bridgetown against Australia. For some time, his life was in danger, but he made a full recovery and played in 15 more Tests, all overseas, against Australia, India, New Zealand and England. Almost inevitably, he missed the 1967-68 home series against England through injury. As a keeper he was reliable whether standing up or back, and three times he kept without conceding a bye in totals which exceeded 500. After retirement he became a leading administrator, and his good-humoured nature was to the fore when he managed the 1984 and 1988 tours to England. In the 1990s he became one of the ICC's more reliable match referees.
