Geoff Boycott

Geoffrey Boycott was born on 21 October 1940 at Fitzwilliam in Yorkshire, England. Well known for his technically correct, doughty style of opening batsmanship, he will also be remembered for his cap-on medium pace style of bowling, especially in one-day cricket. He has represented Yorkshire in the County Championships and has also played for Transvaal in South Africa.
Boycott made his test debut against Australia at Nottingham in 1964 and made a hasty and rather ignonimous exit from it after the fourth test against India at Calcutta in 1981-82, preferring to join a rebel team that was to tour South Africa (then banned because of apartheid policies). He made his one-day debut in the first ever one-day international, against Australia at Melbourne in 1970-71 and bid farewell to the limited overs game at Jalandher in 1981-2. He was Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1965.
Boycott played 108 test matches for England, scoring 8114 runs at an average of 47.72, with 246 n.o. against India as his highest score. He scored 22 hundreds and took seven wickets with his medium paced bowling. He played in only 36 one-day internationals scoring 1082 runs at an average of 36.06, with one hundred and captured 5 wickets at 21 apiece. During a first class career lasting 24 years, he scored 48, 426 runs including 151 centuries, which is phenomenal by any standards.
These performances are all the more impressive when one remembers that ‘Boycs’ made himself unavailable for test selection in the early ‘seventies because he was not made captain of England. He lost out on nearly 30 test matches then and also lost many friends because of his self-centered nature.
Despite his on-the-field image, he has won many fans in India and all over the cricket-playing world for his frank and often-trenchant style of commentating. His Yorkshire accent has been a household feature in TV shows in recent years and his expressions like ‘my moother could bat better’ and ‘the Prince of Calcoota’ have been as popular as Sidhuisms.
