Those are the rules.

Flawed but brilliant leader and player.
More drugs, better mullet.

Stop being so fucking niche.
so I'm not sure which ones are 80s / 00s rather than 90s.
Mark Ramprakash, right?

LOL at self.
A scruffy painter
Jack Russell "Cricketer and Painter" :'D
Try harder please.
Perfect name for a slogging number 8.
Couldn't remember his name - thought of Trevor Hohns but he was over here in '89 tour.
He had some ears didn't he?
you can't disregard an entire country
Richard de Groen
Up until the time I found out he was a bit of a dick
Bit like Min Patel.
During an ODI against Australia at the SCG in late-1997, play was stopped after the crowd pelted Symcox with projectiles, including an entire KFC barbecue chicken.
Thanks and goodnight.
played for Leicestershire I think for a couple of seasons three or four years back.
My cricketing claim to fame is that because he kept swanning off playing for Surrey Schools and development teams, I was made captain of our local club u15s team because he wasn't there every week. He was always proper cheesed off when he came back to play and I was captain instead of him. I'd make maverick field placements and sometimes come out to bowl from wicket keeper like a hero, even though I wasn't that good at bowling. To be honest I wasn't all that good at wicket keeper either. He was miles better than me. Shame it never worked out for him.
Don't think they are related, just interesting they share a name.
worked with his step-daughter. when she mentioned this i basically said "hah, he was RUBBISH". she didn't seem that impressed.
almost a good ODI finisher. Almost.
I remember being at India vs NZ in the World Cup in '99 and everyone singing Horny by Mousse T in his honour.
remarkably, also a 00s and 10s cricketer. Think he's just retired at the age of about 63.
Darren Maddy, as mentioned previously.
He hasn't retired yet though...
