Graham Douglas McKenzie (born June 24, 1941) is an Australian cricketer who played Western Australia (1960-74), Leicestershire (1969-75), Transvaal (1979-80) and Australia (1961-71) and was a Wisden Cricketer of The Year in 1965. He succeeded Alan Davidson as Australia’s first fast bowler and was in turn succeeded by Dennis Lillee, playing with both at the end of his career. McKenzie was noted for his muscular physique (hence his nickname) and ability to take on good batting tracks. His father Eric McKenzie and uncle Douglas McKenzie played cricket for Western Australia and Garth was chosen for the ashes of England in 1961 aged only 19. He made his debut in the Second Test at Lord’s cricket ground, Where his 5/37 (including the last three wickets in 12 balls) wrapped up the England to give Australia a 5 wicket victory. [4]

1964 saw McKenzie’s made his second ashes tour of England. He led the attack as Australia retained the Ashes. His 29 wickets in five Tests have been completed for Australia in England by Clarrie Grimmett in 1930. He took 21 wickets when Australia visited India and Pakistan on the return journey to Australia. Another test in Pakistan in Melbourne in December is a new record for the number of tests in the space of one year; From 11 December 1963 to 8 December 1964 he took 73 wickets in fifteen Tests. This surpassed Maurice Tate ‘s 65 wickets in 1924-25. In this period, the youngest bowler to reach 100 wickets, at the age of 23 and 162 days, 139 days younger than A. L. Valentine. He was named as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1965, the first Western Australian born recipient. [5]

He toured South Africa in 1966-67 and in 1967-68 was dropped for the final two.

In 1968, McKenzie became a full-time cricketer, believing that it would offer him the best chance of financial security. At the time the Australian Cricket Board looked at its amateurs and paid them accordingly. McKenzie joined Leicestershire , captained until 1968 by the Western Australian skipper and former England Test Stalwart Tony Lock . He took over four hundred wickets for the county and was instrumental in his Fourth Crickettrophies in the early 1970s and won their first County Championship in 1975. [6]

In 1968-69 he took 30 wickets (25.26) against the visiting West Indies and at 27 became the youngest man to take 200 Test wickets, a record since beaten. Another 21 wickets (21.00) came on the Indian Tour of 1968-69, but when the Australian team proceeded to South Africa his form slumped (1/333 in four Tests) and they were whitewashed. It led to suspicions that he had contracted hepatitis. He played in the first four Tests of the 1970-71 Ashes series against England, taking 4/66 in the Second Test at Perth, the first played at the WACA Ground and 2-22 in the first ever One Day International at Melbourne . In the Fourth Test at Sydney McKenzie retired hurt after-being white hit in the face by a bouncer from John Snow as the England fast bowler Took 7-40 in England’s 299 run victory. [7] He recovered enough to break Geoff Boycott ‘s seventh test, [8] but was not recalled and was left stranded on 246 Test wickets, two short of Richie Benaud ‘ s Australian record. He was only 29 years old. s forearm in a tower just before the match vital Seventh Test, [8] aim Was not Was Left stranded Recalled and one 246 Test wickets, two short of Richie Benaud ‘s Australian record. He was only 29 years old. s forearm in a tower just before the match vital Seventh Test, [8] aim Was not Was Left stranded Recalled and one 246 Test wickets, two short of Richie Benaud ‘s Australian record. He was only 29 years old.

In his 60 Tests McKenzie took 5 wickets in an innings 16 times, and 10 in a match three times. [9] McKenzie only played one day, the first in 1971, in which he took 2/22. [10]
