“I first got involved with England PD cricket following a conversation with Ian Salisbury (the head coach) when England played at Barnards Green last summer. I then was involved in the Lions squad last summer and in their training squad in the winter. I did my first main squad training camp in January and am pleased to have recently been selected as a member of the squad for the 6-team World Series in Worcester this August. Having gone from not even considering playing Disability cricket to being selected in an International World Series in the space of a year, I’m extremely excited and will be working especially hard to ensure I’m in the best position possible to earn selection to represent my country. “
Best of luck Ben and Will.
