Profile

Benny Howell is a citizen of the world who for a while felt he belonged nowhere: born in Bordeaux, educated at the Oratory School in Berkshire, and with Australian and UK passports, he was almost lost to the game. Instead, alongside his middle-order batting, his individualistic, experimental medium-pace has gained such prominence at Gloucestershire that he can fairly be regarded as one of the world's most innovative T20 specialists.
