Terry Jenner dies

Terry Jenner has died at the age of 66. The Advertiser/ Adelaide Now report includes a video of him in action with the ball.

Yet I remember him best for his gutsy 74 on a damp Adelaide Oval pitch in the 1975 Ashes Test against Derek Underwood in full flight his element
(Derek never flighted the ball much but he earned his nickname "Deadly" on a turning wicket).

In between his first class playing days and his later rise to coaching eminence Jenner lived a somewhat chequered life, which included trouble with the law and at least one season playing in the Adelaide Turf CA (though not with or against me).

Update 27 March
