Profile

The hard-hitting David Sales was a precocious talent, his first-class career beginning in spectacular fashion when he cracked 210 not out against Worcestershire in 1996 aged 18 - the youngest person to score a Championship double hundred. The appearance of a young cricketer with potential for destruction excited predictions of an international career, but it never quite worked out. He had a long, and at times fruitful, county career, and was highly watchable when in full flow, but a first-class average below 40 was perhaps a cause for regret.
