Profile

Alan Richardson is a man who took the scenic route to success. He graduated through the Staffordshire system and signed for Derbyshire for the 1994 season, but it was to take more than a decade-and-a-half before he could truly be said to have fulfilled his youthful promise: in April 2012, a month short of his 37th birthday, he was named as one of Wisden's Cricketers of the Year.
