Graham Roope Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Graham Roope The former Surrey allrounder Graham Roope, who has died suddenly in Grenada aged 60, played 21 times for England, but will be remembered almost as much for his enthusiasm on the field, his crisp driving when the runs were coming at an ebullient rate, and his quirky habit of going on a walk, as the non-striker batsman, with opposing fast bowlers.

Graham Roope

As Geoff Arnold recalled: “I once saw him doing it with Andy Roberts. He would try to chat to the bowlers and maybe hope to gain a few secrets about the next ball. I suppose you could say it was a bit of good-natured gamesmanship.

The tall, wiry Roope was good enough in his own right for Test recognition. On occasions, he was not at his more fluent for his country, though he did score seven 50s. He was a superb slip fielder, who took 35 catches for England – 602 altogether in his first-class career – and it was unfair to imply, as a few did, that those stunning reflexes and flawless fingers tilted the balance when it came to team selection. Alec Bedser, then chairman of selectors and, as a Surrey man, well aware of Roope’s strengths and intermittent technical weaknesses, was apt to have a paternal word in his ear.
