August 21, 2019

Wayne Holdsworth was a distinguished First Class Cricketer who claimed 212 wickets in his career. He made an immediate impact for NSW claiming 6-55 on debut at the MCG against Victoria and went on to win a number of Sheffield Shield titles with NSW including a match winning 7-41 against Queensland in the 1992/3 decider at the SCG. This was followed by a berth on the 1993 Ashes tour where he will long be remembered for taking a hat trick against Derbyshire. Not to be forgotten are his batting exploits in the the Mercantile Mutual Cup dispatching a career best 49* off 18 balls against Tasmania at the North Sydney Oval. In our chat with Wayne we re live some of these memories among others as well as finding out what he is up to now.
