Former cricket bowler who won six County Championships with Essex between 1978 and 1993.
He attended Cambridge University and was called up by England for the first time in 1982.
His warm-up routine, which involved him lying on his back and appearing to wrestle with an invisible beast, made him a cult figure.
His father Donald represented East Africa in the 1979 World Cup.
He and Allan Lamb were both part of England's 1992 Cricket World Cup team.
