Think muscularity. As a young man of promise Wayne Daniel helped terrorise England in 1976, but then lost favour after joining World Series Cricket until his career was briefly resurrected seven years later. Daniel's action was instantly recognisable, beginning with a run like a bather first ooh-aahing onto a hot beach then sprinting through the shallows to sizzle his feet, followed by a classical back-bending gather, heaving delivery and knuckle-scraping followthrough. From wickedly just-back-of-a-length, he bowled the heaviest of balls, which jarred the bat sufficiently to loosen a batsman's fillings. West Indies' selection policy was Middlesex's gain: there have been few more successful or popular overseas players in England. He subsequently helped coach aspiring fast bowlers and appeared as a commentator on radio in 2003-04. Mike Selvey
