"Ed was fantastically consistent for us last year, making telling contributions all through the summer. His hundred against Notts, at Lord's in the first game of the season, was one of the best played all year. His game is based on a sound technique and a natural touch - but despite the elegant flicks through midwicket and cover drives, Ed is a pragmatic batsman. He knows where the runs are and is clear about how he wants to get them. He brings the same intelligence to the dressing room, where he is Su Doku king and master of understated wit."
