Profile

There was a time in the late seventies and early eighties when, if England were playing the West Indies at the peak of their dominance of world cricket, that Peter Willey could pack his bag ready for the call to the Test side. A hard, fearless man from the north-east, he made 15 of his 26 Test appearances against the West Indies and 13 of his 26 one-day internationals against the same opposition. The rest of his one-day internationals were against Australia, as were nine of his Tests. He did not have many easy opportunities to bolster his average.
