A series of niggling injuries meant that Kent's lively seamer Alan Igglesden played only three Tests. In an era when England changed their quicks with startling frequency, he can count himself unlucky. In 1993 Igglesden was picked for the first Test against Australia and looked set for an extended run. He didn't play in a single Test that summer however, thanks to a groin injury and then a side strain. He did play twice in the Caribbean the following winter, but took only three wickets and was not picked again. Igglesden suffered an epileptic fit while playing for Berkshire in 1999. Doctors found a non-cancerous brain tumour that was successfully treated by medication.
