Profile

Paul Terry will look back on 1984 with decidedly mixed emotions. The absence of Gordon Greenidge led to Hampshire promoting Terry to open the innings, and he hit such form that by July he had passed 1000 runs - including five hundreds - and he was drafted into an England side on route to a 0-5 series whitewash by West Indies. Against a formidable pace attack Terry's weakness outside off stump was cruelly exposed. At Headingley he made 8 and 1, and then in the first innings of the next Test at Old Trafford his arm was broken by Winston Davis. Terry returned, arm in sling under his sweater, to successfully help Allan Lamb reach his hundred and unsuccessfully try to prevent England having to follow-on. He missed the remainder of the season, but despite continuing to score consistently for Hampshire he was not again seriously considered by England's selectors. Terry was a tall and upright batsmen and a superbly athletic fielder. He helped Hampshire win the C&G Trophy in 2005 as the club's manager, as well as promotion to the first division of the Championship in 2004, but quit his role after a poor 2008 season.
