Profile

Ken Shuttleworth was a tall right-arm fast bowler with a long run who never fulfilled his early promise but nevertheless had a successful career with Lancashire and played five times for England. Dogged by injuries, usually minor, when fit he remained a potential matchwinner, and the highlight of his Tests was 5 for 47 on debut against Australia at Brisbane. On that tour he made his one ODI appearance in the first-ever one-day international at Melbourne. His batting was spectacular as befits a tailender. He ended his first-class career with four seasons at Leicestershire before ending up at Staffordshire.
