Profile

Phil Newport was one of many England seamers in the late 1980s and early '90s to find themselves only one bad performance away from the axe. He took seven wickets on debut against Sri Lanka in 1988, and then ten on the first day of Worcestershire's low-scoring tour match against Australia in 1989. He was picked for the first Test, but was spanked all round Headingley as Steve Waugh announced himself to English audiences, and the selectors showed no mercy. He did play one more Test, as a replacement at Perth in 1990-91, but despite being one of the better swing bowlers on the county circuit he was never picked again after that.
