Profile

At 6ft 6ins tall and weighing in at something over 15 stones, Tim Munton cut an imposing figure. But his size could never generate that extra pace which would have made him a genuine fast bowler instead of a fast-medium merchant, the type that tend to proliferate in England. He made his debut for Warwickshire in 1985, was awarded his county cap five years later and voted the county's player of the season in 1990, 1991 and 1994. He attracted the attention of the England selectors in 1992 when he played in the third and fourth Tests against Pakistan. He averaged 25 with the bat but his four wickets came at 50 apiece and the selectors decided they had seen enough. Munton's later seasons were marred by a series of injuries - he missed much of the 1995 season recovering from a back operation, and all of the 1997 season through injury at a time when he was captain. Munton joined Derbyshire in 2000 and was appointed vice-captain for 2001 but retired at the end of that summer.
