Profile

Bob Hurst was a tall, slow left-arm bowler with a good action, who played 100 matches for Middlesex between 1954 and 1961. Bob Hurst was successful in 1956 and 1957, and received his cap, but was inclined to be short of confidence and never fully established himself at a time when Lord's pitches were becoming less helpful to spin. He returned to club cricket with Teddington, where he was a major force. Hurst was a popular dressing-room figure; his red hair earned him the nickname Bloodnut.
