Profile

Joe Clarke, a wicketkeeper-batsman, graduated through the age-groups to earn his first England Lions call-up for the 2015 series against Pakistan A in the UAE. Having started his cricket life in Shropshire he joined the Worcestershire academy where he soon moved into the England Under-19 set-up. He took part in the 2014 U-19 World Cup and in the 2014-15 winter played club cricket for South Perth then on his return was prolific for Worcestershire 2nd XI which earned him a first-team chance. He scored a maiden List A hundred - an unbeaten 131 - against Gloucestershire and then his maiden first-class hundred against Sussex in the space of a month. He is rated by Worcestershire's director of cricket, Steve Rhodes, as the most talented young player to develop within the club's system since Steve Davies.
