Brian Boshier, a medium-pace seamer who used his height to good effect, made his Leicestershire debut in 1953. He had no pretensions as a batsman, and his bat bore the legend on the back - "Running In - Please Pass". In 1955 he did not get off the mark until his tenth innings of the summer.
But as a dependable seam bowler he really came to the fore in 1958 when he took 108 wickets for the county, earning him his cap. He again captured 108 wickets in 1961, and these were the only occasions he took more than 60 in a summer. His form fell away and he was released at the end of 1964.
"Brian was an opening bowler, medium fast," county colleague Terry Spencer said. "He was accurate and did a lot with the ball. He was a great bloke. He enjoyed his cricket tremendously and we had some great days together."
