Full Name

David John Brown

Born

January 30, 1942, Walsall, Staffordshire

Age

82y 33d

Batting Style

Right hand Bat

Bowling Style

Right arm Fast medium

A reliable and hard-working fast-medium bowler, and unusually for an English seamer, as effective overseas as at home. With his height (he was 6' 4") he was able to make the ball bounce, move off a length, and was quick enough to hurry good batsmen on hard wickets. Brown's determination, which enabled him to recover from injury, made him popular with the public and selectors alike, and that quality was reflected in his role as a dogged tail-ender. He captained Warwickshire from 1975 to 1977, and was vice-captain of the MCC team that toured Pakistan in 1966-67.

After retiring he combined farming and horse-breeding with his role as Warwickshire's manager, although he returned to the fray at the age of 40 in 1982 to help Warwickshire out of an injury crisis. In 1986 he was approached with a view to him becoming England manager before the role was offered to Micky Stewart.
