Ben Cox made headlines in 2009 after he was plucked out of his A-level classes at Bromsgrove School to make his first-class debut aged 17. He signed a four-year deal at Worcestershire in 2009 and became the first-choice wicketkeeper half-way through the 2010 season. But he made only one half-century and after struggling in the first four matches of the 2011 season, it became apparent that Cox's promotion had come too soon and he was replaced by another Ben - Scott, who came initially on loan from Middlesex.
After initially impressing, Scott slumped in 2012 and was released at the end of the season, with Cox retaking the gloves for the final three matches of a terrible campaign in which Worcestershire were relegated.
But if he thought he was likely to go uncontested as keeper, he was to be disappointed when Worcestershire signed Australian-born Michael Johnson ahead of the 2013 season.
While Johnson limited Cox's chances in 2013, he was released at the end of the season providing Cox a clear run at the position in 2014.
He responded in fine style. With his keeping substantially improved, he impressed against the spin of Saeed Ajmal and recorded a maiden first-class century against Hampshire to help his side achieve an unexpected promotion.
For 30 minutes, everything else took a backseat, as the world watched in awe and fear, a fired-up Pakistan fast bowler mercilessly bullying an Australian batsman
As a six-year-old, he watched Wasim Akram at the 1992 World Cup and decided that he would be a left-arm fast bowler. As a man, he put on a show very nearly as memorable as Wasim's 23 years before
The SCG might be India's preferred semi-final venue at this World Cup, but persistent rain in the lead-up has left them worried their spinners may not get the help they are widely expected to
This contest brings together a belligerent bunch of brats and braggers from two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism and a high opinion of themselves
Over the last few months, he has slowly moved from a flashy finisher, to a more measured risk manager
It was Grant Elliott and New Zealand's time in Auckland. Not South Africa's. But the Proteas will leave this tournament wondering when that will ever change. Maybe next time.
