Left-arm seamer Chris Wood is one of the most talented young bowlers on Hampshire's books, but his progress has twice been slowed by knee surgery which has wrecked two summers.
He has earned a reputation as a skilful bowler in one-day cricket and twice in 2012, in the T20 final against Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank 40 final with Warwickshire, held his nerve in the final over to secure his side the trophy.
Born in Basingstoke, Wood came up through the Hampshire age groups and was selected for England Under-19s to tour South Africa. In 2010, he got his break in county cricket and returned 20 wickets as Hampshire lifted their first T20 title. He has been a key part of the attack in the shortest format, with Hampshire reaching Finals Day in each of his first five seasons at the county. In 40-over cricket he has also performed well, averaging 23.92 in his first season and taking 18 scalps en route to Lord's success in 2012.
He is improving his Championship cricket too, enjoying healthy campaigns in 2011 and 2012, where he also made a maiden first-class century at Grace Road. A knee problem hindered his 2013 but a year later, following surgery, he returned to play the final four matches of Hampshire's Division Two-winning campaign, took 15 wickets 16.80, and signed a new deal through to 2016. Further knee surgery was again needed as injury wrecked his 2016 summer.
