A supreme athlete and talented left-handed batsman, Carberry made his Test debut in Bangladesh during 2010 before suffering an illness that kept him out for much of the 2011 county season.
One of the finest fielders in the country, Carberry made a solid contribution for England with scores of 34 and 30, but then found himself stuck behind former captain Andrew Strauss and his replacement Alastair Cook.
Frustrated by a lack of opportunities at first Kent and then Surrey, a move to Hampshire in 2006 has seen Carberry become one of the leading run-scorers on the county circuit.
He signalled his return to cricket late in the 2011 season with an unbeaten 300 against Yorkshire, where he and Neil McKenzie put on 523 for the third wicket - the largest partnership in Hampshire's history.
Carberry made useful contributions on Friends Life t20 finals day and in the Clydesdale Bank 40 as Hampshire completed a trophy double in 2012.
