Profile

Euros Lewis had a short career with Glamorgan during the 1960`s as a left-handed batsman and off-spin bowler. He made his debut in 1961, initially as a bold and free hitting opening batsman, before working hard on his bowling, and dropping down the batting order. His sharp off-spin supplemented the first choice spin of Don Shepherd and Jim Pressdee, and in 1965 he had a memorable match against Sussex at Cardiff Arms Park. He began with a quickfire 80, before returning the remarkable figures of 2.2-1-1-4, polishing off the Sussex second innings in the space of just fourteen balls.
