James Pipe dreamed of being a county cricketer, and got his wish in 1998 when he signed for Worcestershire. He had to wait a long time to establish himself at New Road, but when Steven Rhodes finally retired in 2004 Pipe had his chance. He was unlucky that his promotion coincided with the emergence of the exceptionally talented Steven Davies, and Pipe, anticipating he would once more be playing second-fiddle, moved to Derbyshire for the 2006 season.
The move proved a good one as he was the only 'keeper on the staff and put in some impressive performances with the bat to go with his 50 dismissals in 14 matches. The most exhilarating was a 79-ball 84 to help defeat Somerset. He improved further in 2007, registering his first two hundreds for the county and finishing with an average of 36.06.
He is a hugely popular member of the squad, is constantly in the gym and is also working towards becoming a qualified phsysiotherapist.

Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
