TEAMS

Jeff Hammond was a right-arm fast-medium bowler whose career was dogged by injury and ended by a back problem. He took 34 wickets his second season for South Australia in 1970-71, and was the youngest member of the side which toured England in 1972. Although he did not appear in the Tests, he made an impact, notably when he took 6 for 15 to blast out the Minor Counties, but showed signs of having a suspect back. He played all five Tests in the Caribbean in 1972-73. and in Guyana ripped through West Indies top-order with four wickets to reduce them to 42 for 4 and set up Australia for a 10-wicket win. But he broke a foot on his return home, and was never able to force his way back into a side dominated by Lillee, Thomson and Walker.
