Known throughout the cricket world as 'Gus', and arguably the most controlled and consistent England bowler of the 1990s, Angus Fraser is a former England player and Middlesex CCC Captain. As right-hand bat, right-arm fast-medium bowler he played in forty-six Test matches and forty-two One Day Internationals for England.
His finest professional career moment is often regarded as being the Barbados Test Match of the 1993/94 West Indies tour, when he took 8–75 in the first innings to help set up a famous victory, West Indies' first defeat at Bridgetown for over half a century. Another outstanding moment with the bat was in a last-wicket second-innings stand with Robert Croft to save the Third Test at Old Trafford against South Africa in 1998.
Although born in Lancashire, Angus Fraser played all of his county cricket matches for Middlesex in a first-class career spanning 18 years, from 1984 to 2002. He also served as County Captain from 2001 until his retirement in 2002 and is currently Chief Selector for the England cricket team.
Following retirement from professional cricket, Angus worked as the cricket correspondent of The Independent newspaper (2002–2009), until his appointment to the newly created role of Managing Director of Cricket by Middlesex County Cricket Club in January 2009; a position he still holds.
