  Dead Famous

Lindsay Francis Kline, born on September 29, 1934 and died October 2, 2015, Lindsay was an Australian and Victorian cricketer.

He played in 13 Tests for Australia and 88 first-class matches between 1955/56 and 1961/62.

Lindsay was a left-arm spin bowler, bowling left-arm unorthodox spin (or chinaman).

Lindsay is probably best remembered for his involvement in the outcome of two Test matches of the 1960/61 West Indies tour of Australia.

He was the batsman who faced the last ball of the last over off Wes Hall in the famous Tied Test between Australia and West Indies at The Gabba in Brisbane in 1960.

He also partnered all-rounder Ken Mackay in a 100-minute last wicket stand in the Fourth Test of the same series at the Adelaide Oval which forced a remarkable draw.

Lindsay is one of the few cricketers to have bowled a hat-trick in Test cricket, which he did in Cape Town in 1957/58 in his second Test.

In the Second Test in Lahore in 1959/60 he took 7 wickets for 75 in the 2nd innings.

Despite playing well in India and Pakistan, his form dropped at home.

Lindsay was in the touring party to England in 1961 but did not play in any of the Test matches.

He attended Camberwell High School from 1949 to 1950.

Lindsay Kline died at age 81 on October 2, 2015.
