Nasser Hussain is one of the most ambitious and best captains of England. His success was a triumph of willpower over several technical deficiencies including a dominant bottom hand and unorthodox leg and head positions that led him to lean back in the drive. Under Hussain England won four Test series in a row and rose to third place in the ICC Test Championship table when it was launched. After the disappointing performance by England in the 2003 World Cup, Hussain surrendered the one-day international captaincy, and he resigned the Test captaincy during the series against South Africa. In May 2004 he resigned from all forms of cricket. He will be remembered as one of England's finest captains.
