A Wiltshire boy who found his way into the Hampshire set up, James Vince is a highly-rated young batsman and reminiscent of Michael Vaughan, according to former England coach Duncan Fletcher, who worked with him at the Hampshire academy. Vince has enjoyed one-day success with Hampshire, is improving his red ball cricket, and is a regular in the England Lions squad.
Like Vaughan, an adherence to sound technique does little to temper his attacking instincts, and after he broke into the Hampshire side in 2009 he averaged over 50 in his first round of limited-overs matches before impressing again for England at the Under-19 World Cup. Vince became a First XI regular in 2010, and in August of that year confirmed his pedigree with an innings of 180 against a Yorkshire attack that included Ajmal Shahzad, Tim Bresnan and Adil Rashid at Scarborough. In that innings he added 278 with Jimmy Adams, breaking Hampshire's fourth-wicket record which had stood since 1970.
Vince went past 1,000 career runs for Hampshire while still a teenager - the second youngest player in the county's history behind Phil Mead to do so. In 2012 he averaged 55.50 as Hampshire won the Cyldesdale Bank 40, the second part of a one-day double. 2013 saw great improvement in the County Championship and Vince passed 1,000 first-class runs in a season for the first time He remains a very promising prospect and has toured Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Australia with England Lions.

His rapid improvement with the ball has been integral to England coming from behind to lead the series - but that is just one area where Moeen Ali continues to impress
Why does the man who is possibly England's greatest fast bowler occasionally turn into Mr Hyde on the field?
