Profile

Gary Ballance's reputation flowered during a run-rich 2013 season after which he was selected for England's tour of Australia. Although he did not play a Test in England's 5-0 whitewash, he did follow up an ODIU debut against Ireland in Malahide that summer with further limited-overs forays.
