Profile

When Alex Loudon was named in England's Test squad for their tour to Pakistan in 2005-06, it was the culmination of an effortless progression through the ranks that has had him earmarked for years as a future England captain. A prodigious player in his schooldays at Eton College, he moved steadily from public school to university to county cricket in the smooth fashion that was once common-place but is now most unusual. After captaining England in the Under-19 World Cup in 1999-2000, he went to Durham University. His 317 runs there in 2003, boosted by 172 against Durham, was the most in a single season by a UCCE player. While his batting might not have pushed on since then quite as expected, he has developed his offspin impressively, adding a fledgling doosra to his armoury, and in his last outing for Kent in 2004, he took 6 for 47 to complete a Championship win over Middlesex. To general surprise (and displeasure) in Canterbury, he signed a two-year contract with Warwickshire three weeks later.
