Profile

Grandson of the legendary Denis, Nick Compton had quite an act to emulate. He might not share his relation's ability to entertain with the bat - few ever have - but he has made his own career as a strong-willed top-order batsman with a correct technique that has been highly regarded enough to win England Test caps. Selected to open the batting for England after a prolific domestic season in 2012, he didn't do too much wrong in nine Tests but England concluded Compton was not the man for the national side.
