Playing Role

Middle order Batter

Ross Edwards was a dependable middle-order batsman and a brilliant cover fielder (although he started as a wicketkeeper) who improved with age and was 29 when he was picked for his first overseas tour , to England in 1972. In his second Test at Nottingham he opened the innings in an emergency and hammered an unbeaten 170. Australia might have thought they had found a new opener, a pair in the next Test resulted in Edwards returning to his more familiar middle-order role. After another solid home series against Pakistan, he toured West Indies as the reserve wicketkeeper, but a poor series meant he was out of the side until recalled against England in 1974-75, hitting his second hundred at Perth. He toured England in 1975, top-scoring with 58 in the World Cup final defeat by West Indies, and in the Tests series which followed he made 99 in a crisis at Lord's, but didn't play for Australia again after that series. In 1977 he joined World Series Cricket, ending his career in 1979-80. An accountant by trade, he moved to England where he continues to play club cricket.
