Profile

There was a sense of deja vu about Alex Blake's 2019 season when his powerful 57 off 38 balls drove Kent to an unlikely two-wicket victory over Hampshire in their T20 Blast match at the Ageas Bowl. Coming in with his side 41 for 4 and needing another 105 runs, he clubbed consecutive sixes off the final over to secure victory with two balls remaining. His knock was reminiscent of the corresponding fixture in 2015, Blake's breakout season in which he slammed 71 off 30 balls with his side 70 for 5 needing 178. It was also a reminder that, despite his best efforts to factor in all three formats, he remains somewhat of a limited-overs specialist.
