POLLOCK FAMILY CRICKET DYNASTY

Peter and Graeme Pollock are possibly the best-known cricketing brothers in the history of international cricket. They played together on the same South African team. Peter was a fast bowler who sent the ball hurtling at batsmen at speeds up to 90 miles per hour and took 116 wickets in 28 test matches (internationals), while his younger brother, Graeme, was a prolific batsman who scored 2,256 runs in 23 tests. Both players would probably have amassed even more impressive figures had political boycotts against South Africa not curtailed their sporting careers.
