Who is Ben Cox?
Cox was called up to make his first-class debut, aged 17, in Worcestershire's penultimate County Championship match of 2009, against Somerset at Taunton. Withdrawn from his lessons at Bromsgrove School for the occasion, he scored 61 in his only innings of a drawn match, winnings compliments for an innings that after a slightly nervous start had become one of "great maturity and judgment". Keeping wicket, his first first-class dismissal was that of Marcus Trescothick, stumped for 72. He also took four catches, including a spectacular leg-side dive to dismiss Arul Suppiah.
Cox pressed his claims for a regular place in the side in his first game of the 2010 season. Batting at number eight in a non-first-class warm-up match against Bradford/Leeds UCCE, he came to the crease with his side struggling at 140 for six; his magnificent 110 was scored off only 138 balls. Worcestershire went on to win the game.
