BIO: Nicholas Richard Denis Compton is a South African-born English cricketer who is a right-handed top order batsman and occasional right-handed off spin bowler. He is the grandson of Denis Compton he plays first-class cricket for Somerset County Cricket Club. Upon completing his A levels at Harrow in June 2001, Compton joined Middlesex on a summer contract. Compton made his Middlesex first-team debut in the Norwich Union League at the end of the 2001 season, batting at six he scored just 6 runs from 9 deliveries in a 40 run defeat by Glamorgan. His impressive performance for Middlesex's Under-19s and Second XI led him to receive the NBC Denis Compton Award. The following winter, he was selected for the England Under-19s squad to take part in the ICC Under-19 World Cup in January and February 2002. He played in Norwich Union League, impressing in reaching his maiden one day half-century with an 86 not out against Lancashire which consequently led to him winning the Middlesex's NBC Denis Compton award for the second consecutive year. His breakthrough season saw him score 1,315 runs at an average of 46.96, topping Middlesex's first-class runs charts and taking home the NBC Denis Compton Award for a third time in 2006. In 2010, Compton subsequently signed for Somerset on a multi-year contract. Compton was the only English batsman to score 1,000 runs in the County Championship and won the PCA Player of the Year award for the first time.
