One of England's fastest bowlers during the 1990's, Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1995, and author of the book You Guys Are History.
He was called up to England in 1989 after several Test players decided to take part in a rebel tour to South Africa.
His ineptitude as a batsman seemingly added to his popularity, as he was always given a big cheer from the crowd as he went up to bat.
He married Jenny Malcolm in 1990.
He and English TV presenter Rav Wilding both appeared on celebrity editions of the game show The Weakest Link.
