Nasser Hussain
Nasser Hussain
Born: 28/3/68
Team: Essex
ODI debut: 30/10/89
Past World Cups: 1999

Right-handed batsman

Since assuming the captaincy after the debacle of the last World Cup, Hussain has overseen an upturn in England's fortunes despite the recent disappointments in Australia.

But on the one-day scene this will be his greatest challenge and one he will have to rise to if England are to have any chance.

As a batsman Hussain has been criticised in some circles for slow scoring in the 50-over game.

He has his best average playing at first-wicket down as well as his highest score.

That innings of 115, his first century, came last summer in his 72nd one-day international

However, at the World Cup, the fitness of his troops permitting, Hussain will drop down to number four in the order allowing Michael Vaughan to bat at three.
