Ben Sanderson has been a wicket-taking force in Championship cricket in recent years, claiming nearly 400 career wickets.

Consistently striking with the new ball, Sanderson was the third highest wicket-taker in Division Two and earned a place in the Greene King Team of the Year for 2019.

Instrumental in the Northamptonshire’s promotion, Sanderson’s excellent numbers have continued during the covid affected seasons – finishing with the most wickets for the club in 2021.

Since being plucked from the Yorkshire cricketing system, Ben Sanderson has been a match winner for Northamptonshire. Taking bucket loads of County Championship wickets, Sanderson’s ability to find movement through the air and off the pitch has offered him vast amounts of success in Division Two and beyond.

Taking 55 wickets at an average of 21 in 2016 and 60 wickets at just 16.70 in 2018 helped Sanderson build his reputation as a devastating opening bowler with the red ball in his hands.

Sanderson also proved his short-form value when he was thrown the ball on T20 Finals Day, delivering 2/21 in Semi Final and 3/31 in the Final to help the Steelbacks take the crown.
