Profile

Ben Cotton collected some impressive scalps in his first season in Derbyshire colours. On his first-team debut in a NatWest T20 Blast fixture against Lancashire at Old Trafford, he claimed the wicket of Jos Buttler. More international scalps followed against the Indian tourists in Derby as he accounted for Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. To complete a promising first season, he also featured in Derbyshire's first quarter-final in nine years in the Royal London One-Day Cup and made a Championship debut against Surrey at The Oval.
