Mark Butcher brought focus on himself in 1997 as an aggressive opener with a forceful cover-drive, a sure sense of his off stump. In 1998 he gave vital centuries against the world's two best teams - South Africa at Headingley and Australia at Brisbane. In 1999, he even captained England in a Test against New Zealand. In 2002 he achieved consistency, making 551 runs at 55 and maturely playing David Boon to Trescothick and Vaughan's Taylor and Slater. In 2004 he became England's highest scorer in their 3-0 Test series routing of West Indies in the Caribbean - where he made 296 runs in four matches. He reached 50 Tests, without playing in a single one-day international, and was appointed Surrey captain for the 2005 season.
