Alec Stewart

Alec Stewart
Wicketkeeper
Right-handed batsman

Born: 8 April 1963
County: Surrey
Test appearances: 126
Debut: v West Indies 1990

The way Stewart keeps going gives hope to all oldies out there, although I think carrying on to 39 would have been a bit beyond me!

He has been messed around over the years - opening and wicketkeeping, top four and wicketkeeping, opening and not wicketkeeping…

But now he looks settled, relaxed and has fallen on his feet batting down the order and playing behind the stumps.

He has been the backbone of the English side for nearly a decade and will want to go out with the Ashes.
