Profile

Ossie Wheatley was Wilf Wooller`s successor as Glamorgan`s captain. Between 1961 and 1966, the former Warwickshire and Cambridge Blue led the Welsh county with a mix of good humour and debonair authority, and proudly led them to victory over the 1964 Australians.. His fast medium bowling also added an extra dimension to Glamorgan`s attack, and he developed a most effective partnership with Jeff Jones, taking over 100 wickets in both of his first two seasons with Glamorgan, His best performances for Glamorgan came in 1968, when he took 9/60 against Sussex, and finished on top of the county`s averages with 82 victims at 12 apiece, to become one of Wisden`s Cricketers of the Year.
