Nick Compton

The former England opening batsman and Wisden Cricketer of the Year is sure to safely guide you through to lunch (well, almost) with his Cricket World Cup show weekdays from 10-11am.

 

The Middlesex and Somerset right-hander scored more than 12,000 runs in first class cricket, and earned his England cap in November 2012 against India.

 

Two Test centuries against New Zealand in March of the following year contributed to his place as one of Wisden's five Cricketers of the Year, having averaged 99.60 for Somerset in the previous English summer.

 

Nick made the move from being in front of the camera as an England cricketer to behind it as an exhibited photographer last year, with the Maddox Gallery in Mayfair displaying his black-and-white images taken in a range of countries across the globe.
