Batting Style

Left hand Bat

Bowling Style

Left arm Fast

Left-arm pace bowler Tyrell Johnson played in only one match for West Indies, at The Oval in 1939, but it was enough for him to join the select list of bowlers who have taken a wicket with their first ball in Tests. England opener Walter Keeton played on to his first delivery, and he also caught and bowled Len Hutton, but the war wrecked his chances of any more caps.

Tyrell Johnson played one Test match for West Indies against England at The Oval in 1939, when with his first ball he caused Keeton to play on. He had also taken a wicket with his first ball of the tour, at Worcester. Very tall and thin, he bowled left-arm at a brisk medium pace and with appreciable in-swing. Of the 16 first-class wickets he took on his one tour, those of Hutton and Oldfield also came in The Oval Test.
