A right-arm fast-medium bowler who always played in glasses, he won selection for the 1982 England tour on the back of an outstanding domestic season and would have played in the Headingley Test but for injury. He made his debut against Australia at Lahore the following winter, taking match figures of 5 for 92. He played four more Tests in the next two years without any real success, although he continued to excel at the domestic level. In 1985-86 he was recalled for first Test against Sri Lanka, but he took only one wicket and that was the end of his international career. His one-day record was surprisingly good for one who played so few times. In 1982 he took the the first hat-trick in an ODI, removing Rod Marsh, Bruce Yardley and Geoff Lawson.
