Profile

Alex Blake caught the attention with some whirlwind displays in white-ball cricket in 2015 as part of an exciting Kent side that reached two cup quarter-finals and brought hopes of better times ahead without managing to win a trophy. Three innings stood out: a career-best 71 not out from just 30 balls against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl which turned Kent's T20 season, 59 in 24 balls against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham to secure that last-eight place, and another pulverising effort from a seemingly hopeless position against Lancashire at Canterbury in a losing cause over 50 overs. He resisted overtures from Sussex at the end of 2015 to remain with Kent, his native county, but expressed his desire to make progress in the four-day game.
