Profile

Len Coldwell was a well-built fast-medium swing and seam bowler, who generated surprising pace off a short run and was able to bowl long spells. He began with Devon, moving to Worcestershire after two seasons, becoming part of the very strong Worcester side of the 1960s. His new-ball partnership with Jack Flavell contributed to the county's titles in 1964 and 1965. He made his Test debut in 1962, 13 wickets in two Tests against Pakistan winning him selection for that winter's Ashes series. His style, however, was more suited to English conditions and he struggled, although he reappeared in the first two Tests of the 1964 series against Australia. His career came to a sudden end midway through 1969 when he returned to Devon to take up an appointment with a brewery.
