Tim Curtis Bio

Timothy Stephen Curtis, born on November 19, 1961, is a former professional cricketer from England. He was known for his ever-present presence at the top of the order for Worcestershire during their dominant period in county cricket in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Curtis first made his mark in cricket while studying at Durham University. He played for Worcestershire as a student and then had a brief stint at Cambridge University, where he won a Blue. However, it was only when he became available full time that he truly broke through and established himself as a reliable opener.

In 1984, Curtis scored his first century, amassing a total of 1,405 runs at an average of 42.57 during that summer. This was the first of 11 occasions where he achieved a thousand runs in a season, showcasing his consistent and determined batting style. Over his career, Curtis became known for his grit and application, rather than flashy strokeplay.

Curtis had the opportunity to represent England in Test cricket in 1988 and 1989. He played two Tests against West Indies and then three more against Australia. Although he failed to score a half-century and averaged only 15.55, Curtis’ value in the team was not measured solely by his batting average. In a star-studded lineup featuring the likes of Graeme Hick and Ian Botham, Curtis played a vital role in providing stability and support.

In the limited-overs format, Curtis showcased his true potential. He made five appearances in Lord’s finals, winning the prestigious trophy twice. In 1994, he led Worcestershire to victory in the NatWest Trophy after taking over the captaincy in the previous year. Curtis displayed excellent leadership and a knack for performing under pressure in crucial matches.

Throughout his career, Curtis displayed immense determination and dedication to the game. His consistent performances and ability to anchor the innings were highly regarded by his teammates and opponents alike. Although he may not have been the most stylish batsman, his unwavering commitment to the team’s cause made him a valuable asset.

After retiring from professional cricket, Curtis remained involved in the cricketing fraternity. He has contributed to the sport through coaching and mentoring young talents, passing on his knowledge and experiences to the next generation. Curtis’s passion for the game and his desire to contribute to its growth are a testament to his love and dedication for cricket.

Timothy Stephen Curtis’s legacy as a reliable and consistent cricketer will always be remembered. His contributions to Worcestershire’s success and his respected presence in the English cricketing community have solidified his place in the sport’s history.
