Profile

Pat Crawford's career was brief, but in four seasons he achieved much. A tall, wiry right-arm fast bowler, he topped the Sheffield Shield averages in his first season (1954-55) with 25 wickets at 12.96, and toured England, India and Pakistan in 1956. He made his debut at Lord's, but bowled only 4.5 overs before breaking down. It was a sign of things to come. Three more Tests followed in India, but he again broke down in the third, and within a year his first-class career had been ended by injury. He subsequently played in the Lancashire League.
