A compact left-hander with an enviable temperament, Nick Gubbins made an outstanding start to his Championship career, with three half-centuries in his first four innings in 2014. Gubbins' game, initially, was built on accumulation rather than domination, but his ability to strike the ball cleanly contributed to a successful Royal London Cup campaign in 2015 which included a maiden Middlesex century against Suissex at Hove, brought up with a six over midwicket. He and can expect plenty of comparisons with another left-handed Middlesex opener from Radley College - Andrew Strauss.
