Chris Old Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Chris Old was 6 feet 3, athletic and accurate with his seamers, possessing a venomous late out-swinger. He played second — nay, the third — fiddle to Bob Willis and Ian Botham in the England pace bowling line-up, but could be as potent and deadly as the two more illustrious names.

In fact his 143 wickets for England came at 28 in spite of a spate of injuries to his leg and back is testimony to his class. It was his 5 for 21 that wrecked the Indians alongside Geoff Arnold when they were bowled out for 42 in 1974. In 1978, he captured 4 wickets off 5 balls at Edgbaston against the Pakistanis. A successor in the Yorkshire bowling line-up after Fred Trueman called it a day, Old did much that his great predecessor could be proud of.

He was a fine batsman as well, with 6 First-Class hundreds constructed with left-handed biffing. At Edgbaston, in 1977, he hammered the third-fastest hundred of all time, off just 72 balls, reaching his second fifty in just 9 minutes. He played a major role with bat a few times in Test cricket as well. In Calcutta, his 52 and 5 wickets was one of the reasons for England’s win in 1976-77. At Headingley, in 1981, he was one of the late order partners of Ian Botham as he hit 29 and helped him add 67 on the way to that incredible win.
