TEAMS

Terry Alderman was distinguished by the constant smile on his face when he bowled, and by his impeccably aimed awayswingers and offcutters delivered at an honest fast-medium clip that had their highest expression on the England tours of 1981 and 1989, yielding him more than 40 wickets both times. His bowling, like his smile, was inscrutable. He reduced Graham Gooch to such a shambles in 1989 that he asked to be left out of the Test team, a personal victory for Alderman that symbolised the series. Alderman twice spent long periods out of the Australian team, firstly after damaging his shoulder while tackling a English ground invader at Perth in 1982-83, then after joining a rebel tour to South Africa. He was sorely missed in England in 1985. He had productive spells with Gloucestershire and Kent, and is still heard in Australia as a radio commentator.
