Profile

A feisty competitor, whether as an offspinner or a useful lower-order batsman, Gareth Batty's leadership qualities have also done great service to Surrey. He managed seven Tests and 10 ODIs for England along the way which rarely brought him widespread recognition but added to the respect in which he was held in the game - a respect that was reflected in a surprise return to the Test squad in 2016, a few weeks before Batty's 39th birthday, for the tour of Bangladesh.
