Profile

Ben Brocklehurst played life much as he did cricket: with drive, energy, optimism and courage. There were no half measures. When the ball came his way his first instinct was to hit it hard. When a good idea occurred to him or someone else, his reaction was invariably: "OK. Let's give it a go."
