Profile

Chris Benham made his county debut in 2004 scoring 74 against Derbyshire. He represented England at junior level, and also played first-class cricket for Loughborough UCCE. Is first major mark on the professional game came when he struck 158 in the 2006 Pro40 play-off against Glamorgan which appeared to single a promising future. However, he struggled to nail down a regular place in the Hampshire side - despite gaining positive reviews from Shane Warne - and was overtaken in the pecking order by James Vince. After the 2010 campaign the county decided he no longer had a future at the Rose Bowl.
