Born in Whipps Cross, Adam Wheater developed through the Essex academy and Millfield School into an impressive wicketkeeper-batsman. He represented England Under-19s and found a place in Essex's Championship side in 2011, where he averaged 42.31, including 164 against Northants. 2012 was also fruitful but after being told he was third-choice wicketkeeper behind James Foster and Ben Foakes, Wheater bought himself out of his contract at Essex to move to Hampshire.
Wheater was handed the gloves on the south coast for the start of the 2013 season and continued to score runs, making three first-class centuries in his first season. But towards the end of the campaign, Hampshire were keen to get Michael Bates, a superior gloveman, back into their side and Wheater was back playing as solely a batsman.
