Profile

Grandson of the legendary Denis, Nick Compton doesn't share his relation's ability to entertain with the bat but has made his own career as a top-order batsman with a very correct technique. Selected to open the batting for England after a prolific domestic season in 2012, he didn't do too much wrong in nine Tests but England quickly decided Compton was not the man for the national side.
