Profile

Matthew Wood was appointed Somerset vice-captain in July 2005 following the departure of Graeme Smith and seemed to enjoy the responsibility going on to score over a 1000 runs in the Championship for the first time in his career, including 297 against Yorkshire, at the time the fifth highest score by a Somerset batsman. This followed years of underachievement from a player who had shown his promise when winning Somerset's Player-of-the-Year award in 2002. Unfortunately Wood could not build on this in 2006 as he averaged only 23 in the Championship and eventually opted for a move to Nottinghamshire for 2008
