Lewis McManus

Wicketkeeper-Batsman

Lewis is a highly-rated young wicketkeeper and right-handed batsman.

A product of Hampshire's highly successful youth system, he first started attracted attention as part of the County's Under 17 ECB 50-Over Cup winning side in 2011.

A number of impressive performances for the Hampshire Academy in 2013 - including an unbeaten 96 against a strong St Cross Symondians side in the Southern Electric Premier League - saw McManus gain a call-up to England Under 19s for a tri-series against Bangladesh and Pakistan's respective Under 19s.

He finished the summer having scored 216 runs at an average of 36 in the Second XI Championship (including a high-score of 105) and was once again selected for an England Under 19 tri-series against Pakistan and UAE in the UAE in December 2013 and the Under 19 World Cup in February 2014.

McManus impressed with both the bat and behind the stumps during his two first-team appearances for Hampshire in 2015 and he was awarded a new two-year contract at the end of the 2015 season, taking over the gloves from Adam Wheater whilst contributing impressive performances with the bat.

McManus recorded his highest first-class score with an unbeaten 132 against Surrey at the Ageas Bowl in 2016 and he surpassed fifty on three other occasions during a breakthrough season as wicketkeeper.

McManus signed a three-year contract extension ahead of the 2017 season, and despite his 2017 campaign being cut short due to a broken finger, the 24-year-old returned to action in 2018. Competition for places meant Lewis' opportunities were more limited last summer, but he still made valuable contributions, particularly in white-ball cricket where he featured in Hampshire's Royal London One-Day Cup final victory at Lord's.
