Legendary New Zealand all-rounder Sir Richard Hadlee was one of the greatest fast bowlers at his time. Batsmen always struggled to handle his impressive swing bowling.
While he was the first bowler to claim 400 Test wickets, he finished his career as the most Test wicket-taker after finishing with 431 Test wickets. Hadlee was also the first all-rounder to score 1,000 runs as well as to take 100 wickets in ODI career.
He played his final international match in July 1990 during the Birmingham Test against the hosts England where Hadlee finished England’s second innings after dismissing Devon Malcolm (0) through the lbw. It was his last delivery in the international career.
