Wisden Overview
Greg Ritchie was a beefy middle-order batsman with a range of silken strokes who made a century in only his second Test, in Pakistan, but only two more in 28 further matches and ultimately remained unfulfilled in international cricket. His ample proportions probably told against him when a new austerity took hold in Australian cricket as it began to rebuild from the mid-1980s, and litheness in the field became important. It was a shame, because he was aesthetically an appealing cricketer, with a lovely straight-drive. He continued to score heavily for Queensland. Greg Baum
