Date of birth – 26 May 1996 Lincoln
Nottinghamshire First Class Debut – 14 June 2015 v Somerset (Taunton)
Lincolnshire-born off-spinner Matt Carter has developed into a leading white-ball specialist, playing a starring role for Notts Outlaws for several summers, and for the Trent Rockets in the first two editions of The Hundred.
Carter made an immediate impact on his First-Class debut in 2015, as a 19-year-old, ripping through a strong Somerset line-up at Taunton to take 7-56, before bagging a further three victims in the second innings to take 10 in the match.
His forte in recent years, though, has been in the T20 Blast where he has set the tone for many victories by taking early wickets or restricting the opposition’s run scoring.
Carter collected a winner’s medal in 2020 when the Outlaws triumphed behind closed doors on Finals Day, taking crucial wickets of Liam Livingstone and Dane Vilas in the semi-final success over Lancashire. More silverware came at Lord’s last year as Trent Rockets defeated Manchester Originals in the final of The Hundred.
He emulated his brother, former Notts pace man Andy, by representing England Lions as a member of the tour party to India in early 2019.
