Profile

Daniel Lawrence became the third youngest batsman to make a Championship century when he struck 161 for Essex against Surrey at The Oval in April 2015 at the age of 17 years and 290 days. It was only his second first-class game. His chanceless century, part of Essex's 600-plus score on a placid surface, brimmed with panache and self-assurance. In doing so he compiled records - and lots of them: youngest ever Essex first-class centurion, youngest centurion at The Oval, and that third youngest Championship centurion of all time, outdone only by Godfrey Bryan (Kent), 17 years and 245 days, vs Notts, Trent Bridge, 1920, and Dipak Patel (Worcs), 17 years and 270 days, vs Surrey, Worcester,1976. He is a product of Chingford CC (where he first opened the batting at 13) and has also played for the Australian club side Newton and Chilwell.
