“Northamptonshire Cricket Club has been my life since I was 13 years old and although this decision was extremely tough to make, I am excited about starting the next chapter in my life,” Wakely told the club’s website.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my career and I’m hugely grateful for my time in the game. I have had many highs and many lows along the way, but I have always given 100% to Northamptonshire Cricket.
“I can’t thank the club enough for all the opportunities they’ve given me over the years, and in particular head coach David Ripley who has helped, encouraged and supported me throughout. He has become a friend rather than a coach and somebody who I have the utmost respect for.”
The 32-year-old was selected captain
In 2013, the 32-year-old was selected captain of the club’s limited overs sides after leading England to the 2008 Under-19 World Cup.
