In his early teens, Nick won a scholarship to Harrow where he developed his cricketing skills under the tutelage of former Leicestershire opener Tim Boon.
Compton made prolific progress at school, scoring numerous centuries and captaining the side in his last summer.
It came as no surprise when he was selected for the Middlesex U19 side in 2000.
Just 18, Compton represented an ECB Schools XI against the West Indies U19's as opener and later the same summer was selected for England Under 18's against the same opposition, batting at No 3.
He played his county cricket with Middlesex and Somerset and went onto to make his full Test debut in the first match against India in Ahmedabad.
He made 9 and 37, sharing in a first-wicket, second innings partnership of 123 with Alastair Cook. He made his maiden Test 50 in the 3rd Test at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Nick has represented England 13 times.
