Profile

Neil Dexter emerged on the county scene as one of Kent's Kolpak-qualified South African contingent in the summer of 2005. A batting allrounder of considerable talent, he made an instant impact, hitting 79 not out on debut against Nottinghamshire. Towards the end of the 2008 season, he turned down a three-year contract with the county and signed for Middlesex. His Middlesex debut came in the infamous Stanford Super Series in the Caribbean, but Dexter showed he had the talent for four-day cricket too as he averaged 41.70 with the bat in 2009 and an even more impressive 47.73 in 2010. Around him, Middlesex were struggling, however, and when Shaun Udal resigned from the captaincy early in 2010 the position eventually landed in Dexter's hands. Alongside the thoughtful guidance of Angus Fraser as cricket director, Dexter led Middlesex to the Division Two title in 2011. Early in the 2012 season, he relinquished the four-day captaincy to concentrate on his batting (and useful medium-paced bowling) and then, before the start of the 2014 campaign, it was announced that Dexter would hand the reins to Eoin Morgan in both limited-over competitions.
