Peter Taylor, who turns 65 today, played in 13 Test matches and 83 One Day Internationals for Australia, but few will have been more memorable than his remarkable debut in whites. At Sydney, he took the stunning figures of 6-78 against England, initially justifying his selection after being labelled ‘Peter Who?’ by the Australian media. However, he did not take another five-fer over the rest of his Test career, starring more prominently for the ODI side, taking 97 wickets over his 83 games and offering a handy knack for getting through his overs quickly and economically. Taylor became a Test selector for Australia in the late 1990s.
