James's Bio

A high-class swing bowler, James Porter is a professional English cricketer for the Essex County Club. Porter doesn’t offer a lot of pace but he has been extremely accurate with his line and length in the past few years. 

Porter made his first-class debut against Kent in September 2014 and since then he has been a prime feature for the Essex side. Porter came close to an international debut against India three years ago but was then left out of an expanded England training group during the Covid-affected summer of 2020.

Having taken over 400 domestic wickets in the past 7 years, Porter is still hopeful for a place in the playing XI for his country but the long line of top-notch pacers has slid him down the pecking order. 

England’s decision to rest and rotate their options in a heaving schedule could open the door for Porter but he has his sights set on automatic selection. His immediate focus is with Essex, the defending County Championship and Bob Willis Trophy champions but his dream of playing for England is still on cards if he outperforms others in the ongoing County Championship.
