Profile

James Middlebrook is an established county professional, who has claimed over 400 first-class wickets with his offspin. He is also a very useful batsman, who has nine first-class centuries batting down the order. He began his career with Yorkshire, where his father, Ralph, was a key figure at the academy, but found opportunities limited before a fruitful eight-year stint at Essex. He moved to Northamptonshire before the 2010 season. As he gained in experience, Middlebrook's batting became ever more reliable, and he regularly filled in as an opener.
