Profile

A talented wicketkeeper-batsman, Matthew Wade confirmed himself as next in line behind Brad Haddin and Tim Paine when he was picked for the Twenty20s against South Africa in 2011. The call-up was no surprise after a summer in which Wade was the second-leading run scorer in the Ryobi Cup. He had also enjoyed two productive Sheffield Shield campaigns - 677 runs in 2009-10 and 553 runs the following summer. His most important contribution came in the 2009-10 Shield final, when he rescued Victoria's first innings with 96, a key factor in them taking the title.
