Kevan James was an archetypal county journeyman who forged a successful career with Hampshire after leaving Middlesex where his opportunities were limited. A capable middle-order batsman and left-arm seamer, he was not good enough to press for international recognition despite solid performances throughout the 1990s. As a teenager he toured Australia and West Indies with Young England, and in later years spent his winters in New Zealand playing first-class cricket for Wellington. His day in the sun came against the Indians in 1996 when he took four wickets in four balls, and then cracked a hundred for good measure. He was a member of Hampshire's NatWest Trophy-winning side of 1991, and then the Benson & Hedges Cup-winning team the following season.
