Tim MUNTON - England - Test Profile 1992


Tim Munton, the medium-fast bowler from Warwickshire, played two Test matches against Pakistan in 1992 but was too short of top pace to establish himself in international cricket. Munton specialised in moving the ball off the wicket. At 6ft 6in and 15 and a half stone he had an action so energetic that he almost dragged his body round to face the way he had come in his follow through. In his first Test, the third in the series, at Old Trafford he took just one wicket, albeit that of the legendary Javed Miandad, for 112 in the first innings. In the second he took none at all, though he was very economic, sending down 17 overs for just 26 runs


. He scored 25 not out, batting at number ten, and shared a partnership of 84 with Ian Salisbury. In the next Test, at Headingley, which England won by six wickets, he took 2-20 and 1-40. He had toured Sri Lanka with England A in 1991, taking 4-61 in the A Test at Kandy, and was called in to the 1992 A tour to the West Indies when Dermot Reeve was transferred to the Test team. He took 1-46 in the first Test in Trinidad, his victim being future Test opener Richard Samuels, and 1-69 in St.Lucia where the less illustrious batsman was Tony Gray, the Trinidad and Surrey fast bowler. He took 0-40 in Barbados. Munton started playing for Warwickshire in 1985 and captained them in the late 1990s before moving on to play for Derbyshire. (Bob Harragan)
