Shaun Tait, the first man to be recorded at Lord’s as bowling a ball in excess of a hundred miles an hour, had two spells with Glamorgan in T20 cricket.
The first came during 2010 which saw the Australian claim seven victims, with his pace and bounce seeing wicket-keeper Mark Wallace stand so far back that he was almost on the edge of the fielding circle. His second stint came six years later when Shaun added six more wickets to his tally in a season when he shared the overseas berth with Dale Steyn and helped the Welsh county reach the quarter-finals of the T20 competition.
Having appeared in 3 Test Matches, Shaun became a white-ball specialist and appeared in 35 One-Day Internationals and 21 International t20’s, besides playing in many T20 franchises around the world. Shaun also played county cricket for Durham and Essex and since retiring he has become a TV commentator.
