Profile

Alex Barrow's wicketkeeping opportunities at Somerset were initially limited by the presence of Jos Buttler and Craig Kieswetter, two players with England caps and a strong batting suit. Most of Barrow's early appearances came as a specialist batsman, a role he found demanding. Buttler left for Lancashire, Kieswetter was forced to retire because of injury - by 2015, Barrow's way was clear, but his form lapsed at the wrong time and Somerset even brought in Michael Bates, a fine wicketkeeper but with no batting pretensions, to put him under pressure. At least he could console himself that one drop - a legside fumble at Trent Bridge or which James Taylor was initially given out - caused his sportsmanship to be extolled when he called Taylor back to the crease, but his bemused response at the praise suggested he would rather have caught it. Somerset's signing of Ryan Davies, a teenaged keeper from Kent, suggested he would face fierce competition for his place in 2016.
