Profile

Chris Read, born in Devon, reared in Bristol and an England A tourist before he had played a first-class game, quickly established himself as the tidiest gloveman in English cricket. But life as a wicketkeeping purist was no longer any guarantee of success by the time his career reached fulfilment and , even more than Jack Russell before him, he soon realised that England honours would not come easily. He played 15 Tests and 36 ODIs for England between 1999 and 2007 and many admirers campaigned for his selection long after England had decided to look elsewhere.
