Profile

Eddie Leadbeater was a diminutive legspinner who was one of a rare breed to have played for his country but not been awarded a county cap. He played seven seasons with Yorkshire (1949-56) and another two at Warwickshire (1957-58) but lacked the variety or penetration to be really successful, relying on a topspinner for variety rather than a googly. He was surprisingly summoned to India in 1951-52 as an injury replacement, where he took two expensive wickets in two Tests.
