Fred Titmus Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Fred Titmus began his First-Class career when Clement Attlee was in office and ended it during the premiership of Margaret Thatcher. Thus, his career outlasted seven other Prime Ministers in between. It started at the age of 16, and ended in a surprise game on special request of Mike Brearley a few months from his 50th birthday.

Even more incredible was the continuation of his career after losing four toes in a boating  accident. In the summer that followed, Titmus played 30 matches for Middlesex, picking up 111 wickets at 19.37. He also scored 924 runs at 25.35 with five half centuries — in fact, he headed the batting averages for his county. John Woodcock observed in the Times, ”As I watched him carried from the sea I saw little chance of him playing again. [His return is] a remarkable story of good doctoring, good luck and irrepressible spirit.”

Titmus was a good enough batsman to open against Australia when the situation demanded, but his batting was always the secondary skill, made useful through application, pluck and sound basics. It was as an off-spinner that he made his reputation and his claims to the England side.

He loved bowling long spells, cutting off scoring opportunities and patiently waiting for the batsman to make mistakes. At Lord’s he was a familiar sight, hitching up his trousers, blowing into his right hand, and jogging a couple of paces from the Pavilion End with John Murray behind the stumps and Peter Parfitt at slip.
