James Benning is an allrounder, albeit one who is more of a batsman than bowler. He played for England at Under-15 level, and in 2003 he won the award for Surrey's most promising newscomer. He played infrequently until 2005 when was a permanent member of the county's National League and Twenty20 sides, and also made the most of the limited chances he got in the Championship. Unable to nail down a regular first team place Benning joined Leicestershire on in 2009 before making the move permanent for the 2010 season.

He has made just a single appearance in Championship cricket in 2010, however, in Leicestershire's seven-wicket win against Worcestershire at New Road. In that game, Benning made 29 and 26 not out and also took three wickets, but competition for the allrounder's spot in the side limited his chances and he was released at the end of the season.
