Don Wilson was Yorkshire's left-arm successor to Johnny Wardle, and he served the county well during their last sustained period of success. Tall and wiry, he was a favourite with spectators, taking 100 wickets in a season five times, including in three of the seven seasons he was part of their Championship-winning side, and in 1966 he took two hat-tricks. He toured twice with England, to India in 1963-64 and to Australia and New Zealand in 1970-71, Five of his six Tests came on the subcontinent, with the sixth against New Zealand as a reward at the end of a long Ashes series. He also played twice for England against Rest of the World in 1970, matches that were subsequently stripped of their status as Tests by the ICC. He retired from Yorkshire in 1974 and took up the role of MCC's chief coach at Lord's, a position he held until 1991. He continued his links with the game by returning to Yorkshire as coach at Ampleforth College.
