Profile

Michael Bates is a highly-rated wicketkeeper who earned wide recognition for his excellent glovework with a last-ball stumping to win Hampshire the 2012 Cyldesdale Bank 40. While most judges drool over Bates's keeping - his 3.5 average catches per match in 2010 is a Hampshire record for a season - doubts have been raised about his run-scoring ability and his biggest challenge appears to be in front of the stumps.
