Matthew Carter

Nottinghamshire

Matthew Carter is a young English cricketer. He took 7-56 and 3-139 for a match return of 10-195 bowling off-spin on his first-class cricket debut for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club in June 2015.

From a tall classical action with flight, bite and composure, Carter returned the best figures by a spin bowler on Championship debut since Leicestershire's Jack Walsh claimed 7 for 46 against Northants in 1938.

He has recently been judged by ESPN Cricinfo to be one of the 6 english spinners to watch in red ball cricket and will be looking to become a permanent fixture in the Nott's 1st XI during the 2016 season.
