Profile

Born in Torquay in 1946, Roger Tolchard made his Leicestershire debut in 1965, winning his county cap just a year later. A middle-order batsman and wicketkeeper, he toured India and Pakistan with the MCC in 1972-73, performing well. A good keeper, he was unfortunate to be a contemporary of Alan Knott and Bob Taylor. His first-class career batting average (31.13) was actually better than Knott's, and there was a suspicion that he could have become a Test-class batsman had he been unfettered by wicketkeeping responsibilities.
