    Graeme Thorpe

    Such a great batsman. Tragic that he only played 96 Tests

    The best English batsman of his generation.

    Can't wait for GIMH's next thread about how the next great English wicketkeeper batsmen is a kid named James Foster as apparently he has woken up thinking it is 2004 with his threads today.

    Okay I'll remember this rule next time someone posts a thread about Bradman.

    Foster was better than Gilchrist, everyone knows that.

    A tad short of Ambrose tbh.
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    Difficult to know how much impact a coach has had on players but I'd guess that a lot of what is good in the game of Joe Root and James Taylor especially against spin has come from the work they did with Thorpe with the lions and latterly as ODI batting coach.

    I'd rank the batsman of his era like this

    Thorpe > Stewart > Atherton > Smith > Hussain > Hick > Butcher > Ramprakash > Crawley

    When I think of Thorpe, the first thing that comes to my mind is a youtube video in which Waqar castled his off-stump with a yorker in 2001 series.

    100 tests, nearly 7000 runs. Quality player.

    Terrific batsman Graham Thorpe, such a shame he so often came back the next day and was out straight away. Presumably he had a concentration issue - without which I'm sure he would comfortably have averaged 50+
