Graham Gooch – England Cricketer

Graham Alan Gooch is a former cricketer who captained Essex and England. He was one of the most successful international batsmen of his generation. Gooch made his debut in Test cricket in 1975 at 21 against the touring Australia side captained by Ian Chappell. His career blossomed later after being appointed captain, a position he held twice: firstly, and briefly, at the end of the "summer of four captains" in 1988. Gower was thus returned as captain for the losing 1989 Ashes series - in which, for a second time, Gooch's loss of form with the bat resulted in his being dropped, by his own request. Returning for the summer of 1990, Gooch had a golden summer both as batsman and captain against India and New Zealand, scoring runs seemingly at will.
