TEAMS

Norm Graham was a very tall fast-medium bowler who was a tough proposition on any pitch offering bounce. He was with Kent for 14 seasons but played infrequently at either end of his time for club, and often struggled with illness and injury. In 1967 and 1968 he was at his best, taking 104 wickets at 13.90. He was effective in one-day cricket, and his real value can be gauged from his economy rate as much as his wickets. His fourth one-day match was the 1967 Gillette final where he took 1 for 26 from 12 overs in Kent's victory - he went on to play a part in two more one-day cup triumphs. He was a genuine No. 11 and is one of the rare breed who finished with more wickets than first-class runs, and his ground fielding was often entertainingly poor, but at 6'8" that was understandable. After retiring he played four more years for Northumberland.
