Derbyshire’s captain, Billy Godleman, made his debut for Derbyshire in 2013 and has become one of the county’s most prolific batsmen of the 21st century.
With an appetite for scoring hundreds, it’s no surprise that he’s made 22 of them with an additional 43 scores of fifty or more. 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; 2,217 runs at an average of 51.55 with six hundreds, three of which came in consecutive matches in 2019.
Appointed captain in 2016 Godleman has skippered Derbyshire in more than 100 games, one of only 13 players to captain the county on 100 or more occasions. He was capped in 2015.
