Where to start?


Swashbuckling middle order batsman. Caribbean off-drives, extravagant pull shots. When Tom's at the wicket you can't look away. Shame it doesn't always last as long as it should. He used to bat with the heaviest bat in the world (official)!

Famously edged the ball into his face when on 99*, and had to go to hospital. Finally managed to register the magic 3 figures against a 'varied' bowling attack at Seagry in 2007. Very capable self-taught wicket keeper, and now we've allowed him to get out from behind the stumps, he might be yet another OLCC dazzling maverick leg-spin bowler.

Most bizarrely, he has never won the Tour Joker Award.
