Former England international Bicknell is one of the most reliable bowlers on the county circuit and his accurate line and length has troubled many batsmen throughout his lengthy career.
He made his Test debut in 1993 but only played two Tests before being consigned to county cricket again.
He continued to impress in the domestic game, making his mark with both bat and ball as he turned himself into a hard-hitting number eight batsman.
His 2003 successes resulted in him being recalled to the England side for two further Tests against South Africa and he celebrated by taking a wicket with his second ball of the match at Headingley.
That was followed by a six-wicket haul on his home ground of The Oval as England won the fifth and final Test to draw the series 2-2.
Injuries have hindered much of Bicknell’s career, with his long bowling stints taking their toll on his tall, lithe body.
He played in less than half of Surrey's matches in 2005, but still managed to take 29 first class wickets for the club.
However, Surrey play much better with Bicknell in their side and he is still proving himself to be a highly valuable member of their squad.
In May 2005 he became only the 15th bowler to take 1,000 first class wickets for the county when he dismissed Ian Thomas during the Frizzell County Championship match against Glamorgan.
His loyalty to the county was rewarded when it was announced that he had been awarded a testimonial in 2006.
However, he hardly played for the club in the 2006 season as Surrey preferred to use their more talented youngsters and he retired from playing cricket at the end of the season, to take up a job at Charterhouse School.
