Derbyshire captain between 2016 and 2022, Billy Godleman, made his debut for Derbyshire in 2013 and has become one of the county’s most prolific players of the 21st century.
With an appetite for scoring hundreds, he’s made 25 of them with an additional 48 scores of fifty or more. Only eight players have scored more centuries for Derbyshire. His 227 against Glamorgan at Swansea in 2019 was his second double century for Derbyshire having scored 204 against Worcestershire at Derby in 2016.
His List A record is formidable; 2,485 runs at an average of 49.70 with seven hundreds, three of which came in consecutive matches in 2019.
Appointed captain in 2016 Godleman skippered Derbyshire in 148 all formats games; only six players have captained Derbyshire more times. He was capped in 2015.
