Lansdowne top order batsman Henry Cameron has been named as the captain of the Wairarapa senior men’s cricket team for the 2012-13 season.

His appointment was confirmed yesterday by selector-coach Sam Curtis and comes after news that last season’s skipper Greg Todd and his deputy Mark Childs were no longer available for Wairarapa, Todd being overseas and Childs ruled out by injury.

Cameron is an experienced performer on the representative scene and, while he is best known as a hard-hitting batsman, he is also handy with the ball.
