Karl Carver (born 26 March 1996, from Thirsk, North Yorkshire, England) is an English first-class cricketer. A left-handed batsman and slow left arm orthodox bowler, Carver is contracted to Yorkshire County Cricket Club, for whom he played his debut first-class match in 2014.
Carver has been with Yorkshire since 2009, starting at under 14 level. He has gone on to play for the Yorkshire Academy in the Yorkshire ECB County Premier League, and the Yorkshire Second XI, the England Under-19 cricket team, as well as appearing in his debut first-class match for Yorkshire. This was against Warwickshire in June 2014.
Carver had only played two County Championship matches by the end of 2015. However, that was sufficient to earn him two Championship-winning medals, as he played a bit-part role in both of Yorkshire's triumphs in 2014 and 2015.
On the 23rd July 2017, Carver became a bowler to have six sixes hit of him in an over, plus a wide! The batsman he bowled to was Ross Whiteley, from Sheffield!
