Interesting Stuff:

I grew up playing all my cricket in the South West for Bath and Somerset before making my England debut aged 16. At various times I’ve played in the same team as 3 out of 4 of my family, so I come from quite a cricketing family. Absolutely love playing and watching sport. I am a big Portsmouth FC fan and one of the best days of my life was walking out on the pitch at half time earlier this season. Have a degree in psychology from Loughborough University.
