Nick Browne cemented his place in the Essex side in 2014 averaging 54.16, with a top score of 132* (322). He went on to win the 2014 First XI Young Player of the Year award.

Awarded his County Cap in 2015 after the conclusion of the Glamorgan fixture, in a season which also saw Browne become the first player since Ravi Bopara in 2008 to score 1,000 runs in the County Championship season for Essex. His 151* (184) against Leicestershire taking him past the milestone.

He once again made 1,000 runs at a healthy First-Class average of 50.48 in 2016. This was boosted by a career-best 255 (445) against Derbyshire, one of two double-centuries he made against them that promotion season.

Double-centuries became something of a speciality – he made it three in a row the following summer, this time against Middlesex at Chelmsford, joining Alastair Cook in an Essex record opening stand of 373.

The left-hander was an integral part of both County Championship successes in 2017 and 2019, scoring over 1,000 first-class runs again in 2017 and 710 runs in the 2019.

In 2019, the left-handed batter, still solid at the top of the order, passed 5,000 first class runs for Essex as he scored 67 (168) in the first innings against Nottinghamshire.

5 years after his last double-century, Browne became the first person to reach 200 on four occasions for Essex in First-Class cricket, hitting 234* (454) against Somerset in July 2022.
