Profile

He has been banned for cocaine use, no-balled for throwing, and ultimately kicked-out for five years for placing a bet on his county to lose a match (to be fair to him, it should be stressed that he was not playing in the game), but he always had a permanent twinkle in his eye: Giddins was as chequered and cheeky as they come.
