Profile

Brain Hardie joined Essex after learning his game in Scotland and for almost two decades was a rock in their middle-order, although he latterly formed a highly effective opening pair with Graham Gooch in one-day cricket. He passed 1000 runs 11 times and it was that form that was a key part of the county winning four Championships in eight seasons and three one-day titles from seven final appearances. In the 1985 NatWest final he made 110 and won the Man-of-the-Match award in Essex's one-run victory.
