Profile

Grandson of the legendary Denis, Nick Compton had quite an act to emulate. He might not share his relation's ability to entertain with the bat - few ever have - but he has made his own career as a strong-willed top-order batsman with a correct technique that has been highly regarded enough to win England Test caps.
