Paul Best
Vice-captain

Blues: 2011, 2012

Colours:-

A former England u19 captain, Paul has performed consistently well for Cambridge across his first two years. His left-arm spin has been a constant threat in the six Varsity matches he has played in; a five-wicket haul in the 4-day Varsity and a brutal assault on the Oxford attack for 61 from 30 balls at Lord's were crucial to the treble-winning side of 2011.

Paul scored a magnificent century against Surrey as the MCCU beat the county side in 2011 and was a regular for Warwickshire in their run to the CB40 final at Lord's in 2012.

Representing both Cambridge teams, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire in 2011 made Paul the first player to play first-class Cricket for four teams in one English domestic season. He is also the only man to have ever worn Oxford University Netball stash while playing for the Blues, something he is yet to properly explain.
