Matt Windows started his career as an opener, but soon switched to a middle-order role where he established himself as a largely defensive player, although on occasion he showed he could hit the ball when the occasion demanded. He toured Pakistan with England U-19 in 1991-92 and Zimbabwe and South Africa with England A in 1998-99, but realistically he was never close no national selection. After scoring 1173 runs at 43.44 (which led to his England A call-up) his form rather fell away and thereafter his returns were solid rather than spectacular and from 2004 he was struggling to hold down a place as his form fell away. Nevertheless, he was a key part of the Gloucestershire side which enjoyed so much one-day success between 1999 and 2003, and he was on the winning side in five of six Lord's finals. He retired from the game at the end of the 2006 season after playing only five Championship games that summer.
