BiographyCakes emerged from the Colts system with the reputation of being a talented ball striker with a particular talent for getting himself out once set.
That reputation was re-inforced when after striking a 50 in the 3's against Belhus in 2006, he had to wait a further 6 year for his next half century when he smashed Noak Hill 1's around for 130*
That remarkable knock saw him play some 1st team cricket in 2012, but it wasn't until the Mid-Essex switch in 2014 that he really cemented a place in the 1's, the harder tracks and shorter boundaries proving to his liking as he hit two tons as the aggressive foil to Kurt's crease occupier.
Tougher tests await in the Premier Division, but he won't fail wondering what might have happened if he went after the bowling.
Little Known Fact: Craig is a renowned reptile keeper and has been approached by local community radio to present a show for fellow fanciers called Cakes on Snakes.
