Profile

Justin Langer, who became James Hildreth's captain at Somerset, rated him quite early in his career as "an extraordinary talent" and toughened Australian cricketers of Langer's ilk don't throw around such comments without good reason. But somehow Hildreth's talent has never blossomed into England caps in any format, leaving him as arguably the most talented county batsman of his era never to have won international honours.
