Christopher Mark Wells Read (born 10 August 1978 in Paignton, Devon) is an English cricketer, a wicket-keeper. Despite being continually ranked as one of the most successful keepers in English cricket with an average of over 30, and having greater success with the bat than many of the competing keepers, Read has enjoyed only patchy periods of selection for the national team, but continues to play well in domestic cricket.
