Easily Forgotten

Amid all the tributes that have been paid to Warne and McGrath, the role of Justin Langer in so many of the Australian triumphs of recent years is easily forgotten.

He was an undemonstrative, diligent and courageous batsman who I've got a lot of respect for, partly because he's played for the two counties which I follow most closely, Middlesex and Somerset, and also because he's a fine, underestimated, writer on the game.

I'd particularly recommend his book about his first season with Middlesex, From Outback to Outfield, and his website, which I've only just come across and which I must have a good surf around one of these days, is here.
