The often lugubrious, care-worn appearance of the former Middlesex captain during his playing career has given way to a more relaxed style in his new career as a journalist.

Now cricket correspondent of The Independent, Angus has also fitted in well as a regular contributor to TMS.

Nagging accuracy was the chief characteristic of his bowling and he earned comparisons with Alec Bedser after taking five for 28 to bowl England to a famous Test win over the West Indies in Jamaica.

Four years later an eight-wicket first innings haul helped England achieve an equally surprising victory in Barbados.

His Caribbean love affair continued with 20 wickets in back-to-back Tests in Trinidad in 1998.

Angus would have played far more than 46 Tests for England but for a nagging hip injury.

He nevertheless retired with a healthy haul of 886 first-class wickets.
