Darren Gough is the best strike bowler since since Bob Willis and Ian Botham. He became England's first and foremost exponent of reverse-swing and a fine changer of pace. A showman like Cork, with a softer side, Gough could inspire team-mates and crowds with a diving catch or some daring hitting as well. In 2000 and 2000-01 Gough was Man of the Series against West Indies and in Sri Lanka. Succeeding there and in Pakistan, the traditional graveyard of fast bowlers, was the final stage of his development, although even his self-confidence took a battering after England's failure to compete against Australia the following summer.
