A top quality right-handed batsman, his highest Test score was 207, scored in the first Test of the 1997 Ashes at Edgbaston.
Nasser was captain of both the Test and One Day International England teams until after the 2003 Cricket World Cup and is regarded as one of the best England Test Captains of the era, transforming a continually under performing team to one of achievement.
