Micheal Atherton was a classical English opening batsman who set out to redefine defensive batting in Test matches.

Atherton, generally fearless and unassuming to intimidating bowlers of his era, became the bowlers’ bunny.

A bunny not one but to three bowlers. Glenn McGrath dismissed Atherton 19 times in 17 matches while Cultry Ambrose and Courtney Walsh dismissed Atherton 17 times each in 26/27 Test matches.

In fact, Atherton takes 3 out of the top 4 places in the list of bowlers’ biggest bunnies.

Arthur Morris of Australia was dismissed 18 times by Alec Bedser of England in 21 Test matches and occupies the second spot.
