TEAMS

The fair-haired David Allan made a good start to his international career, taking eight catches and two stumpings in two Tests against India in 1961-62. It was enough to win him selection as first choice wicketkeeper to tour England in 1963, but lost his place to Deryck Murray before the series started. With Jackie Hendriks also vying for the keeper's slot, competition was fierce and Allan was third in the pecking order. He returned when Hendriks was injured, and toured England in 1966, playing two Tests before Hendriks returned. He retired after the series.
