Profile

Kent has high hopes for Adam Ball. A Kentish Man from Bexley, he made his name in league cricket at a very early age. He was drafted into England's Under-19 World Cup squad in January 2010 and, two years later, he captained the side in the 2012 tournament. An aggressive left-arm quick and a useful lower-order batsman, Ball models his style on an Australian, Mitchell Johnson, although he has named England's Andrew Flintoff as his favourite player.
