TEAMS

Dennis Gamsy had the misfortune to break into the South Afrcian side just as it entered its period of international isolation in 1970. An excellent, stocky, bespectacled, wicketkeeper, he made his first-class debut aged 19 - he took eight catches and a stumping - and soon established himself as Natal's first choice. But international opportunities were limited by the lack of matches and the presence of Denis Lindsay, although he toured England in 1965. In 1969-70 he finally got his chance, playing in the first two Tests against Australia, but was left out of the last two matches in favour of Lindsay. He played a few games in the next three seasons before retiring. He subsequently became an active anti-apartheid campaigner.
