Profile

The high regard in which Alex Wakely was held at Northants was encapsulated when he was appointed Northants' captain in limited-overs cricket at only 24, as well as being given the vice-captaincy, behind Stephen Peters, of the first-class side. The captaincy of the Championship side, again in succession to Peters, followed at the end of a dismal 2014 season for Northants as they failed to cope with promotion to Division One of the Championship and were relegated by a distance. Wakely missed that season because of a ruptured achilles tendon suffered on a pre-season tour of Barbados.
