Profile

The Blues have been blessed in recent years with a long list of talented wicketkeepers. Brad Haddin and Peter Nevill have been so good that selectors have been forced to pick both of them when available.

Nevill has had to slot in as a specialist batsman at times, but the added pressure hasn’t fazed him and like Brendon McCullum and Kumar Sangakarra, the 27 year old New South Welshman has proven to be no slouch in the outfield.

The gloveman first grabbed the headlines in 2010 with a superlative 105 against the Redbacks at the SCG. He followed up the following season with a sparkling 112 against the Tigers, although the match was dominated by an unbroken opening stand of 282 by Ed Cowan and Steve Cazzulino.

The roaming batsman has now scored just over 1,500 runs in First-class cricket, with three centuries to his name.

With a solid technique and the ability to clear the pickets, it is somewhat surprising to see his limited involvement in the smash and grab forms of the game.

Nevill has only posted one half-century in the 50 over game, while his highest score in T20 cricket remains 24*.

Importantly for Nevill, his main rival is now vice-captain of the Test team, so he should spend a lot more time behind the stumps.
