Northamptonshire Player Number: 494
Ben certainly seized his second chance in the county game with both hands in 2016. The former Yorkshire seamer bagged 55 first-class wickets for Northamptonshire, more than anyone else, his match-winning performances including 7-22 against Glamorgan at Swansea and 8-73 in the final match of the season against Gloucestershire. His efforts earned him a new three-year contract at the club. Sheffield-born, he played in the same England Under-19s side as Alex Wakely in 2008 and made his Championship debut for Yorkshire that same summer. He was then used in white-ball cricket by the white rose county before being released from Headingley at the end of 2011. A stint in Minor Counties cricket with Shropshire followed before Northamptonshire stepped in – and the rest is history.
