It was another great season for England’s wicketkeeper-batsman where he scored heavily for Sussex when available from international duty. He hit a swashbuckling 86 against Lancashire in a televised Championship match at Hove whilst his highlight in the Friends Life t20 was a knock of 81 from only 37 balls in the washed-out affair against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl. He helped confirm the Sharks’ place in the CB40 semi-final with an unbeaten 78 against Kent at Canterbury, putting on 152 with Luke Wright. On the Test match stage he was among England’s best players in the 2012 home series against West Indies and South Africa and in the historic series victory in India at the end of last year.
