Your way out of date there Gezza. Andrew Strauss England captain in 50 Tests started and ended his career at Uxers.

I saw his last match versus Notts where he made 50 out of an all out 98 and 127 no in a rain ravaged draw.

His retirement shortly afterwards caused chagrin among the Spanish ABUs.

I recall one bloke at a forum wanting to know why he had not continued.

Straussey replied. ' I don't do laps of honour and I have run my race'.

Silence ensued. The only frontline MX cricketer I can think of from your neck of the woods in recent times and that is 35 years ago is PCR Tufnell.

Phil who I liked, had a bit of a chequered career in the early days but proved his worth to both MX and England.

As he said. DRS in his day would have given him many more lbws and added to his 121 Test wickets.

Especially in OZ where one of their umpires on Phil's inquiry as to haw many balls were left in the over.

Replied.' Count them yourself you pommy @#$%&'.
