Angus Fraser Bibliography;
Angus Robert Charles Fraser (born 8 August 1965, Billinge Higher End, Wigan, Lancashire), is the current Managing Director of Cricket of Middlesex County Cricket Club and a former English cricketer and journalist.
Gus Fraser was educated at the Gayton High School in Harrow, Middlesex. Perhaps his finest hour came in the Barbados Test match of the 1993/94 West Indies tour, when Fraser took 8-75 in the first innings to help set up a famous victory, West Indies' first defeat at Bridgetown for more than half a century. His career-best first-class cricket figures, 8-53, were also taken in a Test against the same opposition, this time at Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago in 1997/98. Despite taking eight wickets in an innings, he did not win the Man of the Match award, which went to Carl Hooper from the winning West Indies side.
His ODI high score of 38 not out, scored late in the innings at No. 10 and including a massive six off Steve Waugh, almost brought England back from the brink of defeat against Australia during the 1990/91 tour (Australia won by three runs). Another fine moment with the bat was in a last-wicket second-innings stand with Robert Croft to save the third Test at Old Trafford against South Africa in 1998. Throughout his career he used a bat nicknamed the "Gussy Hitter", the design for the blade was famously put together by his mother.
Despite his Lancashire birthplace, Fraser played all of his county cricket for Middlesex, in a first-class career running from 1984 to 2002 and served as the county captain from 2001 until his retirement in 2002. He served as the cricket correspondent of The Independent newspaper (2002-2009) until his appointment to the newly created role of Managing Director of Cricket by Middlesex in January 2009. He is also a regular contributor to the BBC's Test Match Special.
In the 1996 edition of Wisden, he was one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year
He currently now resides in Pinner with his wife and two children, Alexander and Bethan. In 2008, Fraser in his first managerial role secured the U15 Middlesex Schools Association County Cup with The John Lyon School, with his son playing in the squad.
