Birth of the Dutchman who put the skids under England's Ashes dreams. Peter Cantrell was born in Gunnedah in Australia, and played for Holland in the 1996 World Cup, but he is best remembered for his part in England's first-Test defeat at Brisbane in 1990-91. He was hurriedly called up as a substitute fielder (he'd been at a nightclub until 3am that morning) and took two catches - one a blinder to undo Alec Stewart - as England collapsed fatally for 114 in their second innings. Cantrell's presence was slightly controversial, given that he was probably the best gully fielder in Australia at the time and that the less sure-fingered Carl Rackemann was the official 12th man.
