Profile

Michael Bates was a classy wicketkeeper with few peers during his career in the English game but a player whose opportunities were limited by the growing preference for keepers with strong batting ability. He earned wide recognition for his excellent glovework with a last-ball stumping to win Hampshire the 2012 Cyldesdale Bank 40. While most judges drooled over Bates's keeping - his 3.5 average catches per match in 2010 was a Hampshire record for a season - doubts were raised about his run-scoring ability and his biggest challenge was in front of the stumps.
