Profile

Success came very late for Steve Elworthy. He was 32 when he made his ODI debut and a year older when he appeared in the first of his four Tests - recognition came after years on the periphery. Unlike many bowlers who fade as they reach their mid thirties, Elworthy improved with age and in 2001-02 was the leading wicket-taker in South African first-class cricket with 52 at an average of 18.11, a return which led to him forcing his way into the touring party for Australia.
