Lindsay Tuckett was a tall, wide-shouldered, well-built, fast-medium bowler with endless stamina and a deceptive nip off the wicket after a easy, loping run-in. He made his debut for Orange Free State less than two months after his 16th birthday, and was only 20 when the second world war broke out. By the time cricket resumed he was one of South Africa's leading bowlers. He toured England in 1947, where usually his bowling would have been aided by conditions. As it was, that summer was one of the hottest of the century, the wickets were batsmen friendly, and Tuckett suffered from a persistent groin injury and was seriously overbowled. Nevertheless, he took 69 wickets at 25.78 on the tour, but in the Tests he was expensive (15 at 44.26). In South Africa's next series - at home to England - he fared no better (4 wickets at 79.00 in four Tests) and that was that as far as international cricket was concerned. He continued to perform for his state, and in 1951-52 took 32 wickets at 17.59.
