Profile

A former MCC young cricketer, Ireland wicketkeeper Gary Wilson signed for Surrey in 2005 as cover for Jon Batty. That year he featured in eight 2nd XI matches, hitting a highest score of 56 and impressing behind the stumps. He featured in the Under-19s World Cup in 2004 and 2006 then made his way into regular first-team action for Ireland. However, due to Niall O'Brien's presence, it wasn't often with the gloves and he found a specialist middle-order role. It has been harder work securing a county starting berth, as he has been tried in different top-order positions without consistent success, but Surrey have persisted with him in the middle order and he was a regular starter in 2013, making only his second Championship hundred.
