Profile

A powerfully-built allrounder, Matt Coles made some giant strides in 2012 - three years after his Kent debut. He started the season by making headlines with his left-handed batting - scoring a maiden Championship century against Yorkshire at Headingley. The fact that he reached the landmark with a reverse sweep for six only underlined the impression that this was a young man with confidence to match obvious ability.
