Profile

Paul Franks' sterling service for Nottinghamshire seemed to be approaching its end when the county of his birth appointed him 2nd XI captain for 2014. He had been playing senior cricket for Notts since 1996, an inspiring example of a one-county professional, and, in his mid-30s, was eager to stay ion the game by working towards the ECB's level four coaching qualification.
