Profile

The high regard in which Alex Wakely was encaspsulated 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. It was reward for several seasons of improving and attractive batting in the top four, albeit regularly let down by a propensity for being dismissed when well set: at the start of the 2013 season, Wakely had 19 first-class fifties but only two centuries.
