One of the most promising wicket keeper batsmen in England, Ben Foakes joined Surrey from Essex at the end of the 2014 season.
Having represented the England Lions whilst at Chelmsford, Foakes has continued to be a regular with England’s second side and was part of the Ashes squad for the 2017/18 series, thanks largely to his impressive form at the Kia Oval.
During his first-class career, Foakes has garnered equal respect for his glove work and his skills with the bat. Still just 26, Foakes looks likely to be a fixture at Surrey for many years to come.
Following the 2018 title triumph, Foakes was a late call-up to the England squad for the tour of Sri Lanka. He grasped his opportunity incredibly with a century on debut. He followed this up with ODI & IT20 debuts against Ireland and Pakistan respectively in May 2019.
