Alex Tudor

Battling Back

Tudor's career hadn't yet fulfilled its promise. "It has been frustrating," he admitted to CricInfo. "…these injuries come along and you have to accept it." But Tudor exuded optimism, saying: "I'm a more confident cricketer now, and I'm fitter too." Off the field, Tudor was active promoting youth cricket, helping to launch an innovative after-school cricket program in the London borough of Southwark early in 2002.
