Profile

Cardigan Connor took more than 1,000 wickets in all competitions for Hampshire after being unearthed by talent-spotting Charlie Knott playing for Buckinghamshire. Never has a more popular player appeared for the county. It was often said that Connor in the early part of his career tried to compete for pace with his new-ball partner, Malcolm Marshall. It was only after Marshall retired that Connor's true worth became clear and it was no coincidence that his career-best 9 for 38 came at the age of 35. There was talk of a possible limited-overs international career but it never materialised and he had to content himself with two Lord's finals and a benefit of £147,000, money he took back to his native Caribbean island, tiny Anguilla, where he works as a hotel masseur.
