Profile

Ben Cox has developed into Worcestershire's Mr Reliable, according to his director of cricket Steve Rhodes, enough to win him a long-term contract until 2020. Regarded as one of the neatest keepers in county cricket, he has posted batting averages in the mid-30s in both 2015 and 2016. He needs to maintain such standards because Joe Clarke, his team-mate and one of the brightest batting stars in the country, is emphatic that although he is playing for Worcestershire as a specialist batsman he has not abandoned his commitment to the gloves.
