Profile

Carl Gazzard established himself behind the stumps in 2005 after the retirement of the veteran Rob Turner. Whilst his keeping has shown signs of promise, he must improve his batting to justify his place in the team in this age of batsmen-wicketkeepers. In 2006 he scored just 305 runs from 13 Championship games, a poor return for a player with his ability, and was dropped for the youngster Sam Spurway for the final few matches.
