RELATIONS

GD Alabaster

(brother)

A legbreak bowler, the best New Zealand have produced, and an occasionally useful batsman, Jack Alabaster toured India and Pakistan in 1955-56, England in 1958, South Africa in 1961-62 ... and West Indies in 1971-72. He reached his peak in South Africa, where, in all first-class matches, he took 86 wickets, more than anyone else, and scored 296 handy runs as well. And in the five Tests he took 22 wickets, helping New Zealand to square a series for the first time.
