Derbyshire have justifiably high hopes for the future of their pace attack following the performances and advancements of Ben Aitchison over the course of 2020 and 2021.
A tall right arm bowler with a strong repeatable action. Aitchison has excellent control for such a young bowler and after taking six wickets in 2020 he managed thirty-four at an average of only 23.29 in 2021 with a best of 6-28 against Durham at Derby, the best innings analysis ever against Durham by a Derbyshire bowler.
His quickfire half century against Nottinghamshire at Derby in May hinted at his batting potential.
Written before the 2022 season.
