Date of birth – 19 May 1983 Cuckfield, Sussex
Nottinghamshire First-Class Debut – 13 April 2018 v Lancashire (Old Trafford)
Chris Nash ended a lengthy association with Sussex when he opted to link up with his former Head Coach Peter Moores by moving to Notts during the winter of 2017.
The vastly-experienced Nash was given a First-Class debut by Moores as long ago as 2002, and left Hove after scoring over 11,000 FC runs for his home county.
Nash joined Nottinghamshire on an initial three-year contract, looking to extend a career that has often attracted the attentions of the England selectors.
Apart from reuniting with his former mentor, the attraction to join Nottinghamshire was a fairly obvious one, with the right-hander moving to play his home cricket on a ground where he had always enjoyed great success.
In eight First-Class appearances for Sussex at Trent Bridge he scored over 800 runs at an average of over 57. Three of his 23 centuries have been scored in Nottingham, with a best of 178.
Nash’s maiden summer with his second county was hampered by an injury sustained in his first T20 appearance whilst diving to take a catch.
Nevertheless, the Cuckfield-born player still found time to enter the Nottinghamshire record books, becoming the first uncapped cricketer to captain the county this century, after stepping in twice whilst Steven Mullaney was on England Lions duty.
Nash once again assumed the role of skipper as Mullaney missed a portion of the 2019 County Championship season through injury - and, free of injury himself, the right-hander was able to demonstrate his pedigree with the bat.
Nash top-scored for the green and golds in the 2019 County Championship, with his 667 runs including six half-centuries.
Left on the sidelines in the Vitality Blast group stages, the 36-year-old grabbed his opportunity in the starting line-up with both hands in the quarter-final.
His unbeaten 74 helped Notts to a ten-wicket win over Middlesex, the most comprehensive victory seen in the 2019 Blast.
