Who is Gareth Cross?

Gareth David Cross is an English cricketer who plays for Derbyshire County Cricket Club. He is a right-handed batsman and wicket-keeper who occasionally bowls right arm medium-fast. He played for Lancashire from 2005 until his release in 2013, and the following year signed for Derbyshire.

Cross started his cricket at Roe Green Cricket Club in Worsley, Salford. Cross made his first-class debut in 2005. Lancashire's stalwart wicketkeeper Warren Hegg retired at the end of the season, and the signing of Luke Sutton in the off-season limited Cross' first-team opportunities. Despite the competition he established himself as a regular in the one-day side, although struggled to break into the County Championship team.

In 2009 Cross captained the Second XI, leading them to the semi-final of the Second XI Trophy. Sutton left in late 2010, leaving Cross as Lancashire's first-choice wicketkeeper. He was part of the Lancashire squad that won the 2011 County Championship, but left the club at the end of the 2013 season and after a short time with Cheshire in early 2014 has signed to play for Derbyshire.
