Former Australian batsman Adam Gilchrist while speaking to cricket.com.au website, revealed that Neil McKenzie was the easiest Protea player he was able to rattle with:-
“I don’t know if he was the easiest player to rattle but I think Neil McKenzie from South Africa was one,” Gilchrist was quoted as saying on the cricket.com.au website.
“We all knew that he had a whole lot of superstitions and routines that he had to go through. I was told quite early that he hated stepping on the crease lines or any lines, where you mark centre, he just had this phobia of lines.
“So I just often spent a lot of time scratching lines in the crease line and in and around where he had to stand. That was always a bit of fun just to try and see how that affected him, but he was a good player.”
