In December 2002, when England had lost the Ashes for the eighth series in a row and the onus was on finding new blood, the last thing the team needed was another poseur.

The Worcestershire all-rounder secured his place in the squad for this summer with an impressive performance for England in a practice match against an Australian XI this winter. Kabir made a good impression at the National Academy in Adelaide and was promoted to the one-day squad due to injuries.
