James Savin Foster (born 15 April 1980 in Leytonstone, London) is an English cricketer: a wicket-keeper who played seven Tests and 11 One Day Internationals in 2001/02 and 2002/03. Foster played his club cricket at Ilford Cricket Club and then Wanstead & Snaresbrook Cricket Club. He was educated at Forest School, Walthamstow and Durham University, as was fellow cricketer Nasser Hussain, subsequently Foster's captain at Essex and for England. He never cemented his place in the England line-up, and after breaking his arm in a freak practice accident then by the time Alec Stewart finally left the scene first Chris Read and then Geraint Jones had moved above him in the selectors' thoughts.
