Profile

Ben Cox made headlines in 2009 after he was plucked out of his A-level classes at Bromsgrove School to make his first-class debut aged 17. He signed a four-year deal at Worcestershire in 2009 and became the first-choice wicketkeeper half-way through the 2010 season. But he made only one half-century and after struggling in the first four matches of the 2011 season, it became apparent that Cox's promotion had come a little too soon and he was replaced by another Ben - Scott, who came initially on loan from Middlesex.
