Profile

A silk shirt in an empty English cupboard, Richard Dawson helped bowl Yorkshire to their first Championship since 1968, and at just 21 was chosen for England's 2001-02 tours to India and New Zealand. An accurate, attacking bowler with a dainty, high-stepping action reminiscent of Peter Such, Dawson flights the ball well, and extracts plenty of turn, grips the turf and uses his height to conjure some hearty bounce. Easy-going and quick to learn, he took four wickets in his debut innings at Mohali, and stepped into the breach against Australia the following winter, following an injury to Ashley Giles. Although palpably out of his depth, he kept his head above water, and proved his temperament with some brave batting against the likes of Brett Lee.
