Q.421

This question is about the English cricket writer Peter Roebuck, who recently passed away. Before turning into a widely read and much acclaimed writer-commentator, Roebuck was a cricketer who rose to become captain of his Somerset team in the 80s. Himself a caustic character, he had several run-ins with some of his superstar team-mates in that time.

He often batted at no. 4 for Somerset. He once described his job as staying in long enough to prevent the batsman at no.3 & the batsman at no.5 from batting at the crease together, because #5 would try to hit the ball further & higher than #3.

Who were these two batsmen?
