Founder, moral compass and spiritual father of the Strollers the silky tonsilled, Dali-bewhiskered 'Count Indigo' is an all too rare sighting at matches of late. And late is his speciality, most famously missing a Saturday game by a full and appalling 24 hours. More underpowered than Austin Powered, when his safari suited or crushed velvet bedecked self does occasionally hove into view he can bowl a devastating long hop exactly where the opposition most wants it.
Most memorable non-cricketing moment: The Count’s impassioned and searing “You are all rabble” speech at the notorious 15th anniversary AGM at the Groucho Club.
