My 5 Favourite Cricketers (3)

Back to the seam bowlers. Where my true heart lies. Here's a favourite 5:

1. Brian Statham (England)

2. Frank Tyson (England)

3. Andy Roberts (West Indies, Antigua)

4. Vincent van der Byl (South Africa, but sadly never played a test due to the international sanctions)

5. Mike Procter (South Africa)

I first saw Statham and Tyson bowl at The Gabba in the 1954-55 Ashes series. They became my heroes from day forth.
