TEAMS

Alan Moss was a tall right-arm fast-medium bowler who opened the Middlesex attack throughout the 1950s and early 1960s, a lean period for the county. He coupled excellent stamina with tight control and in his opening overs could be genuinely quick. His nine Test appearances were spread over six years, and he only really found his best form in his final two outings, against South Africa in 1960. At Lord's he took 4 for 35 in the first innings, and followed with 3 for 36 in the second innings at Nottingham. After retiring he ran a printing business and was also chairman of Middlesex.
