RIP Graham Stevenson, the Yorkshire all rounder who has died aged 58. He was a talented player, one of many who played briefly for England at a time when selection policies where far removed from today's approach. His career was held back by injuries and also, according to the appreciation on cricinfo, by a very laid back personality (that endeared him to many at a time when Yorkshire's internal politics could be pretty noxious). One of his feats was an unbeaten century in a last wicket partnership for Yorkshire against Warks, batting with Geoff Boycott.

Corporal - thanks for setting up this thread. Graham Stevenson merits that. I see from cricinfo that his 5 wickets from his two Tests included Gordon Greenidge, Clive Lloyd and Dilip Vengsarkar - an impressive trio.
