Andrew Samson is the current (2018) statistician for the BBC's Test Match Special. He had an awkward start when he was drafted in for the 2010–2011 Ashes series in Australia: resident TMS scorer Malcolm Ashton did not travel when he was asked to pay his own way.[1] An established cricket statistician from South Africa,[2] Samson is remarkable for his ability to find answers quickly to complex questions using his computer database.

Samson is a co-author of The Blue Book: A History of Western Province Cricket, 1890-2011.[3]
