Profile

Joe Denly looked well placed to establish himself in England's ODI and T20 teams after deservedly earning an international call-up in 2009 - and many thought he might also break into the Test line-up. Those ambitions never materialised, a move from Kent to Middlesex failing to reignite his career, and in 2015 he returned to the county of his birth with considerable success. Remarkably, considering that Canterbury has been the county headquarters since 1870, Denly was held by the county's website to be the first capped player to be born in the town. Many words could be spent analysing the message that carried.
