He was not a Bishop of Church of England. In fact he has nothing to do with the Church of England. He was Bishop of Woolwich (a suffragan bishop in the Diocese of London) in 1969, and Bishop of Liverpool in 1975. He had converted to Catholicism. He captained the English team on two occasions against the touring Pakistanis, when he stood in for Len Hutton. One game was won, the other drawn, but the four-Test series ended tied at 1-1. He was a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1953. Source: Wkipedia.
