Leicestershire CCC all-rounder Wayne White had a great last day to what was a highly successful 2012 campaign.
White hit the winning runs in the dramatic LV=CC win against Gloucestershire, scooped the Frank S Smith award for bowling in the First XI at the Club's Awards Night and was presented with his county cap by Captain Matthew Hoggard.
The 26-year-old was capped as he walked off the field of play yesterday and it was a proud moment for him.
He said: "It is an honour to be capped and the Club has looked after me well. We spoke before the season about me having a role as a bowler first and the runs looking after themselves. It has generally been a good season for me and it was good to end with a win."
White took 43 first-class wickets in 2012, the most by any Leicestershire bowler, and also chipped in with 616 valuable runs. White scored his 2,000th LV=CC run during his final innings of the campaign and picked up three five wicket hauls along the way.
That built on an excellent 2011 season so as well as being a matchwinner, White has also developed consistency in his performances. Everyone at Grace Road would like to congratulate Wayne on being awarded his county cap.
