Profile

Sam Northeast has been marked out as a cricketer with leadership potential from an early age, and Kent put their faith in him by naming him as their captain in all competitions for 2016 in succession to Rob Key, a long-serving captain and mentor. He approached the task with energy on and off the field, making five Championship hundreds and heading a spirited Kent promotion challenge which only foundered - Essex taking the single promotion place - late in the season. Kent's continuity seemed assured, as long as the county could keep pace with his ambitions.
