Profile

Born in Norfolk and educated at Stowe, Ben Howgego is a top-order batsman who worked his way up through the ranks from the Northamptonshire Cricket Academy and age-group sides before cracking into the second XI in 2005, while he was still at school. Emphasising how much more developed as a cricketer he was than his contemporaries, he he hammered 201 not out in a twenty-over house match at school, with 21 of the last 36 balls he faced being dispatched for six. He became a fixture in Northamptonshire's second XI, scoring his first hundred for them in 2006 and finding a place in the ECB Development of Excellence XI as a middle-order batsman in the same year.
