Profile

John Price was a solidly-built right-arm fast bowler with a distinctive angled approach to the wicket and an exceptionally long run-up. On his day he was dangerous, with pace generated by his powerful upper body, and the ability to swing the ball away from the right-hander, but he was too prone to injury to make him an England regular. His fielding in the deep was superb, his batting at No. 11 less so. He played 242 matches for Middlesex taking 734 wickets.
