Profile

For any batsman, Taunton is the ideal place to launch a career. There was much expected of James Hildreth from age-group level, and his 101 and 72 in just his second County Championship match, against a Durham attack that included Shoaib Akhtar, hinted at a stellar career. He has not kicked on to international cricket but developed into an entertaining and consistent run-scorer during a decade at Somerset which has seen him score over 10,000 first-class runs.
