Dennis Lillee (born 1949)
Western Australia, Tasmania, Northamptonshire and Australia
Lillee was the outstanding fast bowler of his generation, setting a new world record with a total of 355 Test wickets.
He played his first game for Western Australia in 1969 and recognition by the Australian selectors soon followed.
With flailing hair and a bristling moustache, Lillee was a menacing maelstrom of momentum racing into the wicket before letting loose from a classical side-on delivery.
He made his full Test debut against England during the following Australian summer, taking five wickets.
His first seven matches were all Ashes encounters and on his first tour he made his name on the international stage with 31 wickets at under 18 apiece.
He finished the 1972 tour with a 10-wicket match haul at the Oval - a feat he bettered by one on three occasions against England.
The last came on the final tour in 1981 when, again at the Oval, he secured his best Ashes figures and finished the tour with 39 wickets - his best series return.
