Carl Gray Rackemann OAM (nicknamed "Mocca"), born (1960-06-03) 3 June 1960 in Wondai, Queensland, is a former Queensland and Australian cricketer. He was a fast bowler in 12 Tests, 52 ODIs and 167 first-class cricket matches in a career spanning 1979–80 to 1995–96.


International career

Rackemann, a well built fast bowler, made his Test debut versus England at Brisbane in 1982 and was consistently picked for the national side, mainly for One Day Internationals, until 1985. He was the leading wicket taker during the 1984-85 tour of India.

He signed up to play in the rebel tours of South Africa (1985-86 and 1986-87). Therefore missing out on representing the official Australian team during this time.

Rackemann came back into the Australian team in 1989, first being picked for that years Ashes tour to England. In the 2nd innings of the Test against New Zealand in Perth in 1989–90, he achieved the amazing figures of 31 overs, 21 maidens, 23 runs and 1 wicket.

However, he was well known for being a poor batsman, achieving only 53 runs off his 14 innings with a high score of 15.

Queensland career

A legend in Queensland cricket, Rackemann until recently held the record of 425 wickets until being overtaken by Michael Kasprowicz. Rackemanns last game for Queensland was the 1994-95 Sheffield Shield Final. Queensland won this match and the Shield for the very first time. This was a relief for Rackemann as he had played in four of Queenslands previous final defeats.

He also played English county cricket for Surrey in 1995 and was briefly recalled to the Australian side in 1995 for their tour of the West Indies due to a fast bowling injury crisis.
