Hants set to give debut to Brathwaite
3:16pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in Hampshire Sport
Hampshire have named a 12-man squad, including trialist Ruel Braithwaite, for the LV County Championship match against Northants, which starts at The Ageas Bowl tomorrow.
Michael Carberry and Danny Briggs are both in England's squad for tomorrow's ODI against Ireland, James Vince has a knee injury and Chris Wood is rested.
So former Durham seamer Braithwaite and Michael Bates, whose inclusion could see Adam Wheater play as a speciaist batsman, have been added to the rest of the side that lost to Lancashire at Southport.
Barbadian Brathwaite, who turns 28 on Friday, has 65 first-class wickets at 32, including five-fors in back-to-back Championship matches for Durham two years ago, and impressed Hampshire with 5-53 in the Second Eleven Championship defeat against Surrey last week.
Hampshire academy's 16 year-old off-spinner Brad Taylor, Kent loanee Matt Coles and Michael Roberts are all set for their home debuts.
Northants will give a debut to former Surrey wicketkeeper Jonathan Batty.
Hampshire: Adams, Roberts, Dawson, McKenzie, Ervine, Wheater, Coles, Balcombe, Tomlinson, Taylor, Braithwaite, Bates.
