David Colley was a right-arm medium-fast bowler (with an exceptionally long run-up) and a useful late middle-order hitter who was a surprise choice for the 1972 England tour. He played in three of the Tests without real success or much luck, although his 54 at Trent Bridge came at an important stage of the game.
