Profile

Mark Wood does not fit the proptype of a modern England bowler. He is skinny, barely 6ft tall and does not gain excessive bounce. But a strong showing for Durham in 2013 was enough to win recognition on the England Lions tour to Sri Lanka. Sadly for him, it lasted only one match before he returned home with a side injury.
