Profile

Jack-in-the-box allrounder Gareth Batty had to jink around to find a regular first-team spot. Born in Bradford, he played for Yorkshire in 1997 before moving south to try his luck with Surrey. The young man then went west to Worcester, for whom he took 56 wickets with his offspin (and biffed 491 runs) in 2002. That won him a spot at the England Academy in Adelaide in 2002-03, and the selectors sent for him as they cast around for reinforcements during that winter's injury-plagued tour of Australia. Batty played two one-day internationals in Australia, impressing with his tight lines and feisty fielding, and with that in mind he was included in England's 14-man squad for the 2004 Champions Trophy.
