Profile

John Shilton was one of the players who helped Warwickshire's status to rise at the end of the 19th century. "At his best he was a first rate left handed bowler, slow to medium pace," Wisden noted. "Bowling with a high and very easy action, he combined plenty of spin with accuracy of pitch, and during his early years in the Warwickshire eleven he was brilliantly successful. Apart from his bowling, he was a very useful bat."
