The Wisden Cricketer

The Midlands

County Cult Heroes

TICKER-TAPE parades. Million-pound endorsements. Glitzy Los Angeles parties. The glow around Englandıs current Test players is dazzling. But greatness is not measured solely in Ashes victories, or even in Hello! magazine appearances. So in the coming months TWC will be celebrating the forgottengreats: county cricketıs cult heroes. We profile the big-hitters, fast-livers, long-servers and ceaseless-triers who made up in local adoration what they lacked in wider recognition. Some even lit up grey days at Derby ­ and if thatıs not a kind of greatness, what is?

Each month three writers will profile five candidates from their countyıs history. We then ask you to vote for your clubıs all-time local hero. We begin in the Midlands, with Derbyshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire.
