Profile

Jim Pothecary was a well-built right-arm fast-medium bowler who could swing the ball either way. He toured England as a new-ball bowler in 1960 but disappointed, taking nine wickets in his three Tests after Geoff Griffin had been no-balled out of the series. On the tour as a whole he managed only 53 wickets.
