Profile

The Ashley Giles story is an endearing tale of one man's triumph over the doubters. With a high-trotting approach to the crease climaxing in an energetic flurry of limbs, Giles did not have the most fluent spin-bowling action - possibly because he began life as a fast bowler - and was once derided as a "wheely-bin", much to his own annoyance. But he was accurate, found some turn and even more bounce, and he established himself as England's No. 1 slow bowler during the triumphant tour of Pakistan in 2000-01.
