A scaled down version of his brother Tony: not as big, not as loud, not as good, Ian Greig was never likely to challenge Ian Botham for the England allrounder's job. Determined rather than naturally talented, he was probably lucky to be picked by England in the first place and didn't particularly impress in his two matches. He was released by Sussex in 1985, and emigrated to Australia. He returned to England in 1987 to become Surrey captain, where he helped to introduce young players such as Graham Thorpe and Martin Bicknell into the team. Peter Kirk
