Profile

There are dangerous T20 hitters hidden away in the English county games who the major overseas T20 leagues do not know exist and who, for that matter, are barely known outside their native county. Ross Whiteley is a case in point. It was his unbeaten 91 from 35 deliveries with 11 sixes which swept Worcestershire into the quarter-finals of the NatWest T20 Blast in 2015 and silenced the Yorkshire crowd at Headingley in the process. Only Chris Gayle had a higher strike-rate of batsmen to make 300 runs in the NatWest Blast that season and Whiteley was included in the England Performance Squad for the winter of 2015-16 and named in the Lions squad for a T20 series against Pakistan A.
