Profile

Adam Wheater finally won the battle to become Essex's first-choice gloveman a decade after he debuted as an 18-year-old. His route had initially been blocked by James Foster, leading to a move to Hampshire in 2013, where he developed markedly as a batsman; but he lost the wicketkeeping role on the south coast and soon headed back to Essex, going on to help his boyhood club to Championship success in 2017 and 2019, as well as a maiden T20 title.
