Profile

Kiran More was one of those gutsy little keepers who always relished a challenge, even thrived under it. It falls to a keeper's unhappy lot that he is only noticed when he fluffs a chance and More had the misfortune of putting down Graham Gooch, then on 36, on his way to a mammoth 333 at Lord's in 1990. More will be better remembered though for his fiercely competitive streak that garnered 130 dismissals and 1285 runs in 49 Tests. More than the statistics, it was his approach that set him apart. Indeed his chirpy appealing tended to get under the skin of his opponents leading Javed Miandad to do a puckish jumping jack imitation of More at the 1992 World Cup.
