Profile

David Balcombe is a bustling fast bowler who made his name with a loan spell to Kent in 2011. 33 wickets at 17.81 that season saw his parent club Hampshire wake up to his talent. They hoiked him back to the Rose Bowl and Balcombe became a central figure in their attack, taking 59 Championship wickets in 2012, the best return of Division Two, including 8 for 71 against Gloucestershire - the best figures ever recorded at the Rose Bowl. But he couldn't sustain it in a hot 2013 which was far more favourable for batting.
