Former South Africa left-arm chinaman bowler Paul Adams, who was born on 20 January 1977 at Cape Town, became his country's youngest Test cricketer on 26 December 1995 when he
made his debut against England in Port Elizabeth at the age of 18 years and 340 days. Adams' bowling action was highly unorthodox and Mike Gatting likened it to a "frog in a blender". Though his action initially caught batsmen by surprise, he was soon exposed for lack of variety and quietly slid out of the reckoning. Adams took 134 wickets from 45
Test matches and 29 wickets from 24 ODIs.
