Paul Collingwood is a natural athlete, with a happy-go-lucky temperament. He made England's one-day team in 2001, but four years he had played in just three Tests. The third of these, however, was the single biggest match of his generation - the decisive fifth Test against Australia at The Oval, where his responsible batting helped secure the draw that England needed for a first Ashes triumph in 18 years. An uncomplaining understudy, he has risen to become arguably the finest fielder in the world today, capable of breathtaking moments in the covers and backward point. In Australia in 2002-03 he started the VB Series as 12th man, but was soon spanking a memorable maiden international century against Sri Lanka at Perth - a round 100 that confirmed his place in the 2003 World Cup squad. The final tick in his column is determination - realizing he was treading water, he despatched himself to Melbourne in the winter of 2000-01 to play grade cricket.
