Profile

Wisden overview
As Welsh as Tom Jones, Watkin has been an integral member of Glamorgan's seam attack since 1986. He runs in with ten-to-two feet and an action that culminates in both arms reaching heavenwards, but he's accurate, gets the ball to seam and bounce, and often takes important wickets early in the order; on greentops he can be lethal. A classic horses-for-courses selection for Headingley in 1991, Watkin chipped in to help England beat West Indies, but he won just two more Test caps, despite going on the 1993-94 tour to the Caribbean, where he was restricted to a handful of one-day appearances. He formed part of Glamorgan's gloriously inept tail in the late 1980s, but in 2000 hit his maiden first-class 50. In 2001, shortly after taking his 900th wicket, he announced his retirement to take up a role as academy director for the new Welsh Cricket Academy.
