Profile

Jake Ball, a 23-year-old right-arm seamer, has long been predicted as a bowler with a bright future, but he reached the end of the 2013 season still awaiting his Championship debut. He did have a wonderful memory from 2013 to sustain him, however, in the semifinal of the YB40. He took 4 for 25, his best figures in senior cricket, as Somerset were beaten by some distance. Ball missed the final because of a back injury but could at least watch with satisfaction from afar as Notts brished aside Glamorgan to claim their fist piece of one-day silverware for more than 20 years.
