Legbreak Googly

Terry Jenner was a legbreak bowler with a good googly who struggled to hold down a regular place in the Australian side of the early 1970s. He toured New Zealand in 1969-70 (no Tests were played) and made his debut in the first Test against England in 1970-71, taking two wickets, and was dropped until the seventh Test of the series when he returned with match figures of 4 for 81. He missed out on the tour to England in 1972 and made his own way over to play a season of minor county cricket for Cambridgeshire. He returned to the Australian side for the series against West Indies in 1972-73 where he took 13 wickets in four Tests, including a Test-best 5 for 90 in the final Test in Trinidad. He made two appearances against the 1974-75 England side, taking three wickets but making a vital 74 at Adelaide to help Australia recover from 84 for 5 from where they went on and win the match. His final Test appearance came in the opening match of the 1975-76 series against West Indies. He retired the following season, but hit the headlines in 1988 when he was sent to prison for a white-collar crime. He battled back, becoming a legspinning advisor to the Cricket Academy in Adelaide where he was credited with being instrumental in the success of Shane Warne. A respected coach who travelled the world advising on legspin, Jenner died on May 25, 2011, following prolonged illness.
