A new addition to the ones this year and having a sterling impact. Fast, fiery spells, combined with genuine pace and zip, puts the willies up all but the most hardened of batsmen. His prowess has even been noted by local broadcast media with games involving Emes regularly covered by local media outlets forcing the side to hire a media specialist.
Away from the game and the red carpet, Emes is a keen philatelist, just as likely to be seen on his days off with his head buried in a book about stamps as he is to be down the nets bouncing kids. His love for stamps was born out of an aggressive letter writing campaign to Jonathan Agnew during the late 2000s to complain about some unfounded comments relating to Emes’ batting technique; a campaign that not only sparked a love of stamps but also got him a restraining order from the TMS commentator.
An exciting young talent and one the Crows will be looking to hold onto for years to come.
