One of the most elegant batsmen of his generation, Jim Troughton is no stranger to international cricket after representing England at Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 level. His grandfather is former Dr Who actor Patrick Troughton but the left-hander is now making a name for himself after coming through the ranks at Warwickshire. He is an aggressive batsman who is particularly strong on the off-side. Smashed 37 from 33 balls in the last-ever Benson & Hedges Cup final against Essex last season.

He plays with no fear of failure and his attacking approach allows no bowler to settle into a rhythm - even if they do remain hopeful of a lapse in concentration. His early development at Warwickshire took place in the shadow of Ian Bell, who was called into England's Test squad in New Zealand aged 19, but Troughton is now ready to assume centre stage.
