TEAMS

Peter Parfitt was a quick-footed left-hander from Norfolk whose voice could make a taxi-driver turn his head several streets away. He was unlucky to be competing for an England place at a time when their batting - with the likes of Geoff Boycott, John Edrich, Colin Cowdrey, Ken Barrington, Tom Graveney and Basil D'Oliveira on call - was at its strongest since the 1920s. Parfitt, who was also a more than respectable offspinner and a brilliant slip, still scored heavily enough to play 37 Tests, more than half of them on tour. Of his seven England hundreds, four were scored against Pakistan in 1962.
