James Vince has been called up to the England T20 World Cup squad but who is the batsman’s wife, how long has he played for England and how many T20 runs has he scored?
Vince is a replacement in the England squad for opening powerhouse batsman Jason Roy. Unfortunately, Roy injured his calf in England’s last group game against South Africa and has been ruled out of the team’s push to capture the T20 World Cup.
Vince, who won the 2019 ODI World Cup with England, is a white-ball star. But who is his wife and how many runs has he scored for England across all three major formats?
James Vince wife
Right-handed batsman Vince is married to Amy Denman.
The couple married in October 2019 in Winchester, which is in Hampshire where Vince plays his county cricket.
Denman was at Lord’s in July 2019 when England beat New Zealand in the final to clinch the ODI World Cup for the first time. In the Instagram post below, Amy is the third woman from the left.
Not much is known about their lives away from the cricket field, except they have two children. The Vinces are parents to one boy and one girl – although their names are not known.
Their son was born in late summer 2020.
How long has James Vince played for England?
Vince first appeared for England in a 2015 ODI match against Ireland, however he didn’t get to bat. The game in India was washed out with Ireland only able to bat for 18 overs, and England not doing so. However, Vince did take a catch off the bowling of Tim Bresnan – dismissing Niall O’Brien for 10.
His T20I debut came later that year against Pakistan. This time he did get to bat and he went on to play in the 2016 T20 World Cup. Batting at three, he made 41 off 36 before being bowled as England won by 14 runs.
Vince’s Test debut came against Sri Lanka in May 2016, when he was given the legacy number 670. He scored nine runs in the match at Headingley as England won by an innings and 88 runs.
How many runs has Vince scored for England?
As of Monday, 8 November 2021, Vince has scored 1,368 runs for England in 50 innings across the three formats. That breaks down to:
- 548 runs at an average of 24.90 in Test matches
- 480 runs at an average of 30.00 in ODIs
- 340 runs at an average of 28.33 in T20I.
His highest score for England is 102 against Pakistan in an ODI, while he has six half-centuries.
In the Test arena, he played all five Tests in England’s 2017-18 Ashes tour to Australia. His best return was 83 at the Gabba in the first innings of the first Test as Australia went on to win the series 4-0.
