Darren Bicknell is the elder brother of one-time England seamer Martin but, despite a lengthy career scoring heavily in the County Championship, he has never followed his sibling into the Test arena.
He has featured in a string of England A tours in the 1990s and was seen as a possible international but the opener was passed over in favour of players like Jason Gallian, Mark Lathwell and John Stephenson in the selectors' search for top order stability.
Bicknell played for most of his 19-year career at Surrey but, after a loss of form, he has enjoyed some fine years anchoring the Nottinghamshire innings. He has 46 first class centuries and 87 fifties to his name and has scored more than 19,000 runs.
He scored over 1,000 runs in 2005 in first class cricket, but often failed to convert fifties into bigger scores, making 10 half centuries to just two hundreds.
Although not the most explosive batsman, the 6ft 4in Bicknell has adapted his game to the limited overs arena where he bats in the lower middle order.
However, he only played two totesport league games in 2005, as Nottinghamshire chose to include their younger players in the side more regularly.
