Ben Foakes had a brilliant 2017 season, which saw him called up to England’s Ashes squad for the winter.
His form has not faltered in 2018, and his reputation as one of the most glovesman in the game - THE best glovesman in the game according to Director of Cricket, Alec Stewart - is thoroughly deserved.
Foakes has also contributed well with the bat in Surrey’s middle order, forming crucial partnerships with team-mates to either build on Surrey’s foundation, or dig them out of difficult situations. He ends up as Surrey’s fourth highest scorer of the season with 624 runs.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE SEASON: A remarkable stumping of James Vince off the bowling of Amar Virdi at the Ageas Bowl, to remove the Hampshire batsman for 28.
