Who is Louis Devereux?

Louis Norman Devereux is a former English cricketer who played first-class cricket between 1949 and 1960. He played his county cricket for Middlesex, Worcestershire and Glamorgan, and also appeared for Combined Services. He was capped by Glamorgan in 1956.

Devereux made his first-class debut at the age of 17, appearing for Middlesex against Cambridge University at Fenner's in May 1949, though he neither batted nor bowled. The following month, he played against Oxford University at The University Parks, scoring 32 and 11. These proved to be his only appearances for Middlesex, and in 1950 and 1951 he played occasionally for Combined Services and Worcestershire, on one occasion in June 1951 turning out for the former against the latter. Playing for Combined Services against Glamorgan in late May 1951 he hit his maiden first-class half-century in scoring a first-innings 52.

From 1952 onwards Devereux played County Championship cricket for Worcestershire, and the 1953 season saw him send down over 4,000 deliveries, by far the most he bowled in any one season, and take 55 first-class wickets.
