Graham Thorpe is a sound left hand bat, capable of scoring well against good attacks. Thorpe has a short backlift, a compact defence, and an excellent temperament. He made many runs for Surrey before being selected for England for the first time in 1993, making a century on his debut. After a difficult series in the West Indies, he regained his place against South Africa, and has since become,  a fixture in the team. Although very consistent, he has tended to have difficulty converting good scores into centuries. Particularly strong square to the wicket, he is also a useful occasional change bowler. A fine fielder, both at first slip and in the deep. A persistent back injury has restricted his appearances in recent years, causing his withdrawal from the 1998-99 Ashes series.
