Part of the cricketing dynasty which includes former England batsmen Denis and Nick, Compton displayed a patient approach to four-day cricket when opening alongside skipper Steven Mullaney on his Notts debut.

Compton earned his place in the senior side – and subsequently his professional contract with Nottinghamshire – after impressing with a series of industrious innings in Second XI cricket.

The left-hander reached three figures for Notts’ second string in an encounter against Northamptonshire in August 2019, having hit four hundreds for Kent’s second XI earlier in the same campaign.

The top-order batsman moved from his native South Africa to England in his teens, fighting his way into the professional game via productive stints in London’s club cricket scene.
