Profile

The title of the most sledged cricketer in England is presumably not easily won. It must demand the sort of ability that gets up the opposition's noses: an obdurate nature, a streaky shot or two and one or two fortunate umpiring decisions. Luke Wells describes that reputation as a Sussex in-house joke that has now gained wider appeal. "I attract sledging all over the country. I don't know why it is. If I stick around they try and get into my head and make me make a mistake. "Sometimes it has the opposite effect and makes me work a bit harder."
