Profile

The well-travelled Vince Wells started his career at Kent before moving to Leicestershire in 1992, and finishing with one season at Durham in 2003. A typical bits-and-pieces English allrounder (he bowled medium-pace wobblers and batted in the middle order) Wells - at 33 - was a surprise choice for the England one-day side in Australia in 1998-99. He took 3 for 30 - including three of the top four - in the first Carlton & United Series final against Australia and then cracked 33 in 39 balls. It was enough to keep him in the squad for the 1999 World Cup, but although he featured in England's warm-ups in Sharjah, he didn't play a game in the tournament. His early retirement was brought about by a desire to pursue business interests in southern England.
