Profile

Wisden obituary
Worcestershire's leading run-maker, Don Kenyon, who died on Nov 12 at the age of 72, served the county for so long and with such effect that he might arguably be regarded as the most towering figure in the county's long history. Between 1946 and 1967 he made a record 34,490 runs (34.18) for the club, with 70 centuries. Most memorably, he was captain when Worcestershire at long last won the Country Championship in 1964 and retained the title in 1965. They also reached two Gillette Cup finals in the 1960s, though unsuccessful in both.
