A throwback to yesteryear, Westwood is an archetypal English top-order batsman for whom crease occupation is the mantra. He made his County Championship debut in 2003, two years after he had first appeared for Warwickshire in List A cricket. Thereafter, Westwood proved a steady operator in the four-day game and, despite not being assured of his place in all forms, was handed the captaincy ahead of the 2009 season – a role he relinquished two years later.
