Profile

Alan Rees was one of the finest cover fielders in first-class cricket during the 1960`s, and his athletic fielding resulted in many batsmen either being caught or being run-out as they underestimated the Welshman`s prowess. His reputation as the best cover point in the county game was recognised by the England selectors in 1964 when Rees was called up to act as a substitute fielder in the Third Test against Australia at Headingley.
