A star for Middlesex at 17, he captained England Under-19. he always did well against Australia, averaging 42. His stylish 133 against them at the Oval in 2001, his first Test century in England, All along, he has been a fielder of world class at cover and bat-pad, and a county run-machine. He became even more prolific for Surrey: in 2006, his 20th county season, he was Bradmanesque, scoring 2,278 runs and averaging over 100.
That remarkable form continued, and at county level he was head and shoulders above his peers. He achieved the great landmark of passing 100 first class hundreds, and he may well be the last man to ever reach that number.
He is currently England international team batting coach. It is a great opportunity for the ICM cricketers to learn face to face with one of the great English batsman.
