Profile

Paul Horton, once regarded as a batsman whose measured style was best suited to four-day cricket, gradually developed into a versatile performer in all forms of the game, as adept at scoring runs quickly as building an innings patiently. He also gained a reputation as one of the best slip fielders on the English county circuit.
