Profile

With his tenth ball in Test cricket, Simon Brown trapped Pakistan opener Aamer Sohail lbw and all seemed set fair. But that Test at Lord's in 1996 was Brown's first and last, and England supporters were given another fleeting glimpse of what might have been. Brown says: "I would have liked more caps, of course, but look what happened to other left-armers like Mike Smith of Gloucestershire - one cap and then that's it. Don't know why really."
