Perhaps one of his finest hours was during the 1993-1994 tour of the West Indies when he was instrumental in setting up the famous victory in the Barbados Test match. This was the West Indies first defeat at Bridgetown for more than fifty years.
His score of thirty eight not out in a one day international against Australia during the 1990-1991 tour was almost enough to bring England back from the brink of defeat. However, in the end Australia won by the narrowest of margins - three runs!
At county level Angus played for Middlesex until 2002 serving as their captain during his last year with the team.
In 1996 he was the Wisden ( the cricketer's reference book or 'Bible of Cricket'!) 'Cricketer of the Year'.
Retirement From Cricket
On his retirement from the game Angus turned to the world of media and journalism and became cricket correspondent for the Independent Newspaper. He continued with this post until 2009 when he he left to become the managing director of cricket at Middlesex. He has also worked, on numerous occasions, as a summariser for 'Test Match Special' on BBC radio. Having been under the spotlight for a number of years himself he enjoyed his work in journalism - now he was able to do the analysing!
Angus is available for after dinner speaking all over the United Kingdom. He has much experience on the circuit and his open and relaxed approach will endear himself to any audience
