The left-hander is another graduate of the highly-regarded Kent Cricket Academy and looks to score his runs quickly and is a powerful yet attractive stroke-maker.
His first-class debut came during the 2008 campaign, against the touring New Zealand side. However, it was in 2010 when Alex started to fully show his qualities as he became a regular in all forms of the game.
This culminated in him scoring his only century to date – an unbeaten 105, which included 18 boundaries, against Yorkshire in the final round of championship matches.
2015 was a breakthrough year for Alex as he played a key role in the Kent Spitfires reaching two quarter-finals.
In the NatWest T20 Blast, Blake hit a career-best 71 not out from 30 balls against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl before a match-winning 59 off 24 balls against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham to secure a quarter-final spot.
In the Royal London One-Day Cup run, he smashed 89 off 56 balls against Lancashire in Canterbury Week before a sparkling 50 not out off 36 balls.
Alex is a regular winner of the Fielder of the Year award for his athletic performances in the field, making him a crucial part of the Kent Spitfires limited-overs squads.
Blake was awarded county cap 213 in 2017 after hitting a 46-ball century in the One-Day Cup against Somerset at Taunton earlier that summer.
