Dan Lawrence made his First-Class debut in 2015 and, in only his second County Championship match, the right hander scored 161 against Surrey at the Kia Oval. This made him the third youngest ever scorer of a century in County Championship history, at the age of just 17 years and 290 days.

Further progress followed in 2016 and 2017 with the 20-year-old emerging as one of the finest talents in the English game.

In 2017, he was named as Young Cricketer of the Year by the Cricket Writers’ Club after his 761 runs at 44.76, which including three hundreds, helping the Club to the first County Championship in 25 years. The year also saw Lawrence make his England Lions debut when being selected for Lions’ training camps in both Australia and the Caribbean.

The batter was an important player in the double-winning season; with a top score of 147 (245) in the penultimate game guiding Essex to victory and setting up a final against Somerset to conclude the season.

Lawrence made his England debut in January 2021 against Sri Lanka in Galle, hitting an impressive half-century.

However, half-centuries away in India and at home to World Test Champions New Zealand could not retain his place in the side that would go on to be turned over in an away Ashes tour during the Winter of 2021. Lawrence would be recalled to face the West Indies, where he batted beautifully to score his current test high score of 91 (150); in the second test.
