Curtly Ambrose was a brute of a fast bowler. With unwavering accuracy, considerable seam movement, and chilling hostility at times, the West Indian legend sent shivers down the spine of batsmen across the globe. Ambrose picked up 405 Test wickets and 225 ODI scalps in a career spanning a dozen years. His returns are decorated by 22 fifers and three magnificent ten-wicket hauls to boot. Here’s a throwback to his rapacious spell against Australia back in 1993.
