Was Nick Compton Shown The Door Too Soon?
Nicholas Richard Denis Compton (born 26 June 1983) is a South African-born English cricketer who plays for Middlesex. The grandson of Denis Compton, he has represented England in 9 Test matches. A right-handed top order batsman and occasional right-arm off spin bowler, he made his List-A debut for Middlesex in 2001 and made his first-class debut three years later. A move to Somerset in 2010 saw Compton establish himself as a consistent scorer in a strong top order and following a prolific domestic season he made his England Test debut against India in November 2012. In April 2013, the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack named Compton as one of their five Wisden Cricketers of the Year. Compton left Somerset to return to Middlesex at the end of the 2014 season.
The question still remains, was Compton dropped too soon?
