Daniel Redfern is a left-handed batsman who came through the ranks at Derbyshire to make his Second XI and first-team debuts within the space of two months in 2006, gaining his call-up to the senior side to face Worcestershire in the Pro40 against Worcestershire.
He gained more first XI chances midway through 2007 after some impressive performances in the seconds. He played three successive Championship matches and showed some promise without passing 50 and he also scored an explosive 32 from 25 balls in the Pro40 against Kent Spitfires. He also bowls occasional, but improving, off-spin.
He earned a call-up into the Under-19s in 2007 for their series against Pakistan, and retained his place for a tri-nation tournament in Sri Lanka and the Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia in the winter that followed, scoring three half-centuries in 50-over matches. The following summer, he made an outstanding contribution to the two Under-19 Tests against New Zealand, scoring an unbeaten 151 as England won the first by an innings and 79 not out in the second innings as the second Test finished in a draw.
His international form earned him a breakthrough with his county, for whom he became a first-team regular from the final month of the 2008 season onwards and played in 14 of the 16 Championship matches as a 19-year-old in 2009, hitting five half-centuries and scoring 668 runs at an average of 30.36. His progress stalled somewhat in 2010 but 2011 and 2012 were much better, particularly the latter, which he began by making his maiden first-class century - against Northamptonshire - on the opening day and went on to contribute 792 runs to Derbyshire's Division Two title-winning season at 37.71, with a second century -- a career-best 133 against Hampshire - and five other 50s.

A gutting loss to England, after leading the series 1-0, has thrown up some glaring inadequacies in the Indian team but there is little being said or done in terms of improvement
His rapid improvement with the ball has been integral to England coming from behind to lead the series - but that is just one area where Moeen Ali continues to impress
After 8-0, MS Dhoni could look forward to building a team from scratch; now, there is nothing left for him to contribute. Free him from the Test captaincy and he could yet give back in other ways
For all MS Dhoni's many trophies and accomplishments, Test cricket continues to resist his magic and indefinitely postpone his motorbike ride into the sunset
His decisions in the England series have seemed to confirm that he does not care too much for the Test game. Maybe he should be concentrating on the World Cup
Why does the man who is possibly England's greatest fast bowler occasionally turn into Mr Hyde on the field?
