Profile

Dick Richardson was a fair-haired, stylish, left-hand middle-order batsman and an outstanding close fielder (he holds Worcestershire's record for most catches in a season by a non-wicketkeeper - 65 in 1961 - and in a career -412) . He initially joined Worcestershire as an amateur, turning professional in 1956 and until his premature retirement in 1967 was a lynchpin of the county side, especially when they won back-to-back Championships in 1964 and 1965. His one Test came against West Indies in 1957 when he made 33 - his brother, Peter, was also in that side and it was the first instance of brothers playing together in a Test for England since 1891-92. John Arlott wrote that he was "combative", adding that he was "one of those players of whom it is true to say that his figures do not reflect his worth."
