Northamptonshire Player Number: 480

The national pundits found themselves running out of superlatives to describe Ben’s achievements in 2016 – culminating in him becoming Northamptonshire’s 24th England Test cricketer on the winter tour to Bangladesh and India.  His tally of 1,338 first-class runs for the County last summer including four centuries, the LOWEST of which was 185; he was also the club’s leading scorer in both One-Day Cup and T20 matches, and shone for England Lions in the Tri-series too.  Quite a season!  Picked for the NCCC Academy side as a 14-year-old in 2009, he made his Championship debut four years later and also figured in the T20 final at Edgbaston in 2013 courtesy of Kyle Coetzer’s injury.  The following winter he averaged over 60 for England in a Youth World Cup tournament, a feat only achieved previously by Alastair Cook!
