Profile

David Green was a top-order batsman and a useful medium-pacer, described by Wisden as "undoubtedly the sort of player the game demands - aggressive, talented and entertaining, a forceful driver of the ball, a neat exponent of the pull and cut, and also a sweeper of more than average ability".
