Nasser Hussain

Nasser Hussain OBE (born 28 March 1968, Madras, India) is a former Essex and England cricketer.

In first-class cricket from 1987 to 2004 Hussain scored 20,698 runs in 334 matches at an average of 42.06, including 52 centuries. A pugnacious right-handed batsman, Hussain's highest Test score was 207, scored in the first Test of the 1997 Ashes at Edgbaston.

Hussain is regarded as one of the best England Test Cricket Captains of the era for his part in transforming the side from a habitually under-performing team to one of achievement. Simon Barnes of The Times wrote that "Hussain is the most significant cricketer to have played for England since the war and perhaps the finest captain to hold the office."
