Description:
Geoffrey Miller (born 8 September 1952, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England) is an English former cricketer, who played in thirty four Tests and twenty five ODI for England from 1976 to 1984. He played for Derbyshire from 1973 to 1986, captaining the side from 1978 to 1981, and returned in 1990 after playing for Essex between 1987 and 1989.

The cricket writer, Colin Bateman, noted, "Geoff Miller concedes that he probably enjoyed cricket too much. He did not take it as seriously as some, And when it became a rigorous, grim-faced business, he was not sorry to bow out of an eight-year Test career that never reached the peaks many expected".

Life and career

Miller was educated at Chesterfield Grammar School. From 1971 he was playing in Derbyshire Second XI and in young cricketer's teams. He made his first-class debut for Derbyshire in July 1973, in a match against Somerset, when he scored a duck in his only innings. He was the Cricket Writers' Club Young Cricketer of the Year in 1976. Miller became Derbyshire captain in 1978, and in the 1981 season, led the Derbyshire side to victory in the National Westminster Bank Trophy. He ended the 1982 Boxing Day Test in Australia by catching Jeff Thomson - England winning by a mere three runs. Miller went to Essex in 1987, but returned to Derbyshire for his last first-class season in 1990.<ref...
