Tony Dell provided a reverse of the modern norm, in that he was born in England, had English parents, but played for Australia. A fast-medium left-arm bowler of stocky build, Dell debuted against England in the seventh and final Test at Sydney in 1970-71, taking five wickets in a new-ball partnership with Dennis Lillee, and won a second cap against New Zealand in 1973-74, but in an era when Australia possessed an embarrassment of pace bowlers - Lillee, Jeff Thomson, Max Walker, Geoff Dymock and Gary Gilmour were all above him in the pecking order - his chances were always going to be extremely limited. His career was brief, and he played only five domestic seasons. After retiring he travelled the world raising funds for the Australian International Sports Academy, now based on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.
