Keith Fletcher Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Keith Fletcher The Test career of Keith Fletcher began with a series of dropped catches, flourished in the mid 1970s when he became England’s most dependable batsman, then was blown away in an instant by the hurricane pace of Lillee and Thomson. Fletcher had played for Essex (see photo above) from 1962, and had been christened ‘Gnome’ when he turned up for nets in the fashionable long-toed ‘winkle-picker’ shoes of the day.

Keith Fletcher

He was quickly recognised as an upcoming talent, and toured Pakistan with Mike Brearley’s Young England side of 1967. He made his Test debut at Headingley in 1968 when Colin Cowdrey was injured, but earned the derision of the Yorkshire public when he was put to field at slip and put down several difficult catches. The home crowd thought that Philip Sharpe, left out of the England squad on the morning of the match and one of the great slip fielders, should have been in his place. Fletcher got 0 on debut, but toured Pakistan in 1969, scoring 83 in the second innings at Lahore, but over the next few years he was a victim of selectorial dithering as they shuffled between him, Amiss, Hampshire and Denness for the vacant batting spot. In 1969 he had two unsuccessful Tests, but in the matches against the Rest of the World in 1970 he steered England to an eight wicket victory with 69 not out at Lord’s and made 89 at Headingley. He scored 80 in Adelaide on a 1970-71 Ashes tour but otherwise was disappointing. His best score in his two Tests in 1971 was 28 not out and he failed in his only Tests in the 1972 Ashes series. Fletcher finally established himself on Tony Lewis’ tour of India and Pakistan in 1972-73, scoring 97 not out in Madras, 113 in Bangalore and a 78 and two other half-centuries in Pakistan.
