Ben Cox made headlines in 2009 after he was plucked out of his A-level classes at Bromsgrove School to make his first-class debut aged 17. He signed a four-year deal at Worcestershire in 2009 and became the first-choice wicketkeeper half-way through the 2010 season. But he made only one half-century and after struggling in the first four matches of the 2011 season, it became apparent that Cox's promotion had come too soon and he was replaced by another Ben - Scott, who came initially on loan from Middlesex.
After initially impressing, Scott slumped in 2012 and was released at the end of the season, with Cox retaking the gloves for the final three matches of a terrible campaign in which Worcestershire were relegated.
But if he thought he was likely to go uncontested as keeper, he was to be disappointed when Worcestershire signed Australian-born Michael Johnson ahead of the 2013 season.
While Johnson limited Cox's chances in 2013, he was released at the end of the season providing Cox a clear run at the position in 2014.
He responded in fine style. With his keeping substantially improved, he impressed against the spin of Saeed Ajmal and recorded a maiden first-class century against Hampshire to help his side achieve an unexpected promotion.
