Profile

Chris Dent is a highly-talented left-handed top order batsman who was given a place in the Gloucestershire first XI while still a teenager. He produced a breakthrough season in 2013 with 1128 first-class runs at 45.12 and a maiden List A century, an unbeaten 151 at Cardiff. , but a year later endured a miserable summer of only 436 runs in 22 innings. He left it late to confirm his potential in 2015, following up his part in Gloucestershire's Royal London Cup win with a late-season double century against Glamorgan at Bristol which squezed him past 1,000 Championship runs. Only four batsmen - Will Spearman, WG Grace, Wally Hammond and Gilbert Jessop - had scored more runs in an innings, for Gloucestershire.
