Profile

Wisden obituary
Alan Wharton, who died on August 26,1993, aged 70, was an attacking left-handed batsman who spent 15 years with Lancashire, three with Leicestershire and played a solitary Test for England. After hitting three centuries, plus 73 not out in the Roses match, he was picked against New Zealand at Headingley in 1949. He made seven and 13, missed the next Test through injury and was never picked again. But he remained a successful Lancashire player until 1960, when he moved to Leicestershire. He passed 1,000 runs 11 times and 2,000 in 1959. In 1956 he scored the first century for Lancashire against the Australians since Ernest Tyldesley in 1934. His darkest hour came during his benefit match in 1958 when Lancashire were bowled out by Surrey for 27. In 482 matches he scored 21,796 runs at 32.24. He was also a useful partnership-breaking medium-pace bowler. In 1965, after briefly playing for Cumberland, Wharton returned to teaching, in Colne. He was a long-serving JP and played rugby league for Salford.
