Brian Luckhurst Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Brian Luckhurst was always immaculate in attire, and exemplary in his behaviour on and off the field. As batsman he was a fighter, concentrating hard, aware of his limitations and playing well within them to the best possible effect. Derek Underwood, who maintained that Luckhurst was the best batsman in England between 1969 and 1971, also observed that he was the gutsiest player in his experience.

Brian Luckhurst

According to the Kent and England spinner, Luckhurst started with only two strokes, the square cut and the turn to fine-leg. However, he developed his game and never looked out of place while opening for England. His defence was once termed ‘unbreachable’ by Wisden.

Luckhurst played for England through the first half of the 1970s, not always successful but always gutsy and did well enough given his limited gifts. For Kent he played for 19 seasons and five years after his retirement he became the coach of the county. And 4 years after this, he made a curious comeback.

With several men injured for Kent’s game against Allan Border’s Australians in 1985, the 46-year-old Luckhurst made a surprise comeback. Having played most of his cricket for Kent under the leadership of Colin Cowdrey, he now turned out for a county side led by Chris, the son of his former captain. He batted at No. 10, and even now proved a difficult man to dislodge. He scored just a single in the first innings, but stayed a while at the wicket. In the second innings, he walked back undefeated for 9, having held Craig McDermott and the rest of them at bay for over an hour.
