Profile

When the Australians touring England in 1948 were asked by the English press to name some of the uncapped batsmen who had impressed them most, Don Bradman put forward Phil Clift, the opener from Glamorgan, who died, aged 86, on May 22. Several bouts of illness prevented him from playing at international level but there was no doubting his rich promise in 1948 as he recorded a composed 30 against Ray Lindwall and Keith Miller at Swansea before, later in the summer, celebrating with the rest of Wilf Wooller's team as Glamorgan won the County Championship for the first time.
