Profile

Grandson of the legendary Denis, Nick Compton had quite an act to emulate. He might not share his relation's ability to entertain with the bat - few ever have - but he made his own career as a strong-willed top-order batsman with a correct technique that was highly enough regarded to win England Test caps. As introspective as his grandfather appeared relaxed, he alternated between obsessive commitment and disillusionment when his England career faltered.
