Somerset's new captain Rob Crisp

The end of the 2015 season has seen an unprecedented number of clubs changing their captains, seven to be precise, so we thought we’d run down the current list.

The longest-standing captain is Metro’s Rory Field who has skippered his side since the start of the 2008 season.

Northants Steelbacks Captain Dave Gavrilovic holds the all time record for captaining the most competitive games in domestic blind cricket history with 122 matches to his name (108 for Northants, 12 for New College Worcester, one for Berkshire Stags and one for a BCEW All Star team at the first Twenty20 finals day).

Of the other current captains, Dave Samuels and Rory Field are the next highest on the all-time list, with other current players Andy Dalby-Welsh and Sheraz Chohan also having captained over 60 matches each.
