A natural athlete with a cool temperament is the skipper of England’s T20 team, Paul Collingwood. Born on 26th May 1976, Collingwood is an all rounder who became the first England captain to ever deliver a global tournament when England beat Australia to win the 2010 World Twenty-20. A solid middle order right handed batsman Collingwood has a natural stroke play with great resolve. He also doubles up as part-time a right arm medium pace bowler. He is also regarded as one of the finest fielders of his time, usually fielding at backward point or in the slips. He is the all-time leading run-getter for England in ODI cricket. He became the first player to score a century and take six wickets in an ODI, achieving the feat against Bangladesh in 2005.
