Jack Wilson was a sturdy left-arm spinner who delivered the ball at virtual medium pace, who toured England and India in 1956, making one appearance against India at Bombay towards the end of that long trip and taking 1 for 64. In England he didn't feature in the Tests, but took 43 wickets at 23.06, including 12 for 61 against Gloucestershire at Bristol when he grabbed 7 for 11 in the first innings. His nickname stemmed from his jerky action, a legacy of a football injury when he was a teenager. This meant that his fielding and throwing were generally poor, but considering a doctor had said he might never use his left arm again, Wilson was not unhappy.
