Profile

A member of a famous family - brother Bill and cousin John played for England, and brothers Brian and Eric also played first-class cricket - Geoff Edrich played 322 matches for Lancashire between 1946 and 1958, scoring 15,600 runs in all at the respectable average of 34.82. That included 26 centuries, the highest an unbeaten 167 against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge in 1954. He passed 1000 runs in a season eight times, and once went past 2000, with 2067 runs in 1952. He also took 331 catches, many at slip or leg slip, and claimed five wickets with his occasional medium-pacers.
