Profile

Ben Phillips is a big allrounder who started his career with Kent but after failing to make his mark he moved to Northamptonshire in 2002. His first season was blighted by a serious shoulder injury but he recovered to become a regular in the side. He was a popular member of the team but he was never really more than a bits and pieces player. At the end of 2006 he asked to be released from his contract because his family had not settled in the area and signed a contract with Somerset where he became a regular member of the team - producing some impressive one-day performances under the leadership of Justin Langer.
