Profile

Jack Flavell, the England and Worcestershire fast bowler, died in his sleep on February 25, aged 74. Born in Wall Heath in Staffordshire, his 401 first-class appearances produced 1,529 wickets. He played four times for England, twice in 1961 and 1964 at home against Australia. He signed for Worcestershire in 1949 and soon earned a reputation as a tearaway fast bowler with an overlong run-up. Known then as "Mad Jack" it took him several seasons before he cut both pace and length of run-up, and he quickly became one of the outstanding new ball bowlers in county cricket. He took over 100 wickets in a season eight times, with his 171 wickets in 1961 putting him top of the national averages.
