Lewis McManus took over the gloves from Adam Wheater for Hampshire in 2016, a decision that contributed to Wheater's move to Essex at the end of the season. McManus' 132 against Surrey in a high-scoring match at the Ageas Bowl was his maiden Championship hundred and came after he ran out Sean Ervine early in his innings.
McManus is a promising wicketkeeper-batsman from Bournemouth who has come through Hampshire's academy. He was part of the county's Under-17 side that won the 50-over cup in 2011 and performed strongly for Hampshire Academy in the Southern Premier League. An average of 36 in second XI cricket earned him a call-up for the England Under-19s in February 2014 where he was named in the World Cup squad.
He impressed with both the bat and behind the stumps during two first-team appearances for Hampshire in 2015. Under immense pressure from a rampant Durham bowling attack, his plucky maiden Championship half-century saw Hampshire through to what proved to be a vital draw in a season where they stayed up on the last day.
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
