John Emburey had a 24 year career in cricket as a right arm slow bowler with Middlesex and Northamptonshire.
He played more than 500 first class matches taking over 1600 wickets and also scoring more than 12,000 runs. He also played in over 500 limited over games taking over 600 wickets.
At county level John’s Middlesex career coincided with that of Phil Edmonds. The right and left arm spin combination was a powerful contribution towards Middlesex’s successes in the 1980s. They also combined at England level although the pair often competed for the same place in the Test team.
John played for England in 64 test matches, twice as captain, and he also played in 61 One Day International games. He was also the only cricketer to go on both the England rebel tours to South Africa in 1981-82 and 1989-90.
