A true Bear

Ian Westwood has developed through the Warwickshire Academy system, playing age-group cricket before graduating into the professional staff making his Warwickshire CCC first-class debut in 2003. Ian’s consistent form and strong leadership saw him awarded the role of club captain for the 2009 and 2010 season.

Ian was part of the 2010 CB40 winning team and was a key player in the County Championship winning side in 2012. In 2015 Warwickshire CCC awarded Ian a benefit year in recognition of his outstanding service to the club.

Despite his years experience, Westwood continues to deliver solid performances with his opening partner Varun Chopra. Having finished runners-up in the County Championship in 2014 and the Royal-London One-Day Cup, Ian will be firmly focused on getting the Bears innings off to a good start throughout the County Championship season.
