Alex Wyatt suffered more bad luck with injuries during the 2014 season. An accurate, reliable bowler who shapes the ball away, Wyatt offers the Leicestershire attack something different and is due some better fortune in 2015.
Wyatt had cemented his place in the Leicestershire LV=CC side over the course of 2013 and also made some one-day appearances, including the excellent win against Gloucestershire at Grace Road.
In 2012, Wyatt particularly impressed in both LV=CC games against a strong Hampshire batting line-up. The seamer caused plenty of problems for experienced duo Neil McKenzie and Simon Katich during the win at Grace Road.
Wyatt picked up 13 first-class wickets in four appearances in 2011, including the prized scalp of Andrew Strauss in the final game of the year. The bowler also did well in List A games and in the Second XI and that followed on from promising performances earlier in his Leicestershire career.
Wyatt made a big impression in the Leicestershire ream in 2009. The bowler had a great first-class debut against West Indies by dismissing Ramnaresh Sarwan, who England could not seem to remove during their tour to the Caribbean earlier that year.
He also showed up well during his only Championship appearance against Gloucestershire at Bristol and was brilliant on T20 debut at the Riverside. Not fazed by Durham Dynamos’ batting line-up which comprised many international batsmen, Wyatt took 3-14 from four overs – including a maiden – and took the scalps of ex-England player Paul Collingwood and former Australia ODI batsman Michael di Venuto.
