Phil Tufnell is an English former cricketer turned popular television personality, featuring as team captain on ‘A Question of Sport’ as well as popping up on a host of other shows.

Tipped as the most talented English spinner of his generation, Phil took over 121 Test wickets over his career, placing him 35th in the list of most wickets by an England bowler. He played 42 Tests and 20 One-Day Internationals for England between 1990 and 2001, and 316 first-class matches, mainly for Middlesex.
