Profile

John Simpson, a neat and reliable wicketkeeper capable of useful contributions with the bat, has had his admirers among Middlesex supporters who have proposed him for England Test honours, but a first-class average hovering in the early 30s has never really advanced his claims. All that was forgotten, though, on a memorable final afternoon at Taunton when his 79 not out from 80 balls, rounded off with two legside sixes, completed a thrilling Middlesex run chase at Taunton that proved to be an inspirational factor in a season that brought their first Championship title for 23 years. A hundred against Hampshire in May that year, the fifth first-class hundred of his career, was another strikingly fluent display.
