Profile

Neil Edwards is a left-handed former England Under-19 batsman who marked his promise by scoring 160 for Somerset against Hampshire in 2003, winning an award for the best performance by an uncapped player in the process and attracting comparisons with his mentor, Marcus Trescothick, whose upright stance Edwards mirrors. Yet he failed to kick, missing an opportunity as Somerset put their faith in their young batsmen. He fared more respectably in the Championship in 2006 and enjoyed a productive season in 2007, topping 1,250 runs in first-class matches, before playing for Richmond CC in Melbourne during the 2007-08 winter.
