James Graham Edward Benning (born 4 May 1983 in Mill Hill, London) is a Surrey cricketer. He is a right-hand bat and right-arm medium pace bowler. Benning played for the minor county team, Buckinghamshire, in 2001, in one Under-19 "Test" for England in 2002 and joined Surrey in 2003.
Benning won the NBC Denis Compton Award for young players in 2003.
James, who used to attend Caterham School, scored a one-day world record 496-4 (with Surrey) in 2007. Alongside Ali Brown, also a former Caterham School pupil, the pair put on 296 opening for Surrey, with Benning going on to make 152.
As well as finishing the 2005/06 domestic one day campaign with the highest average of any county player, Benning has been widely tipped to make the step up to the international scene in years to come [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/england/6611329.stm BBC SPORT | Cricket | England | Surrey prospect eyes big break ] ] .
