Profile

James Taylor has been earmarked for a bright future from a young age. A short batsman - Chanderpaul-like in physique - he has adapted to the professional game with impressive results, scoring heavily first at Leicestershire and then after moving to Nottinghamshire. England, though, have taken a while to be convinced, either concerned about his stature or a strong leg-side game that occasionally exposes him defensively.
