With a name like Aneurin Donald, it is no wonder that Welsh cricket lovers become a little misty-eyed when they consider the potential of Glamorgan's young batting hope. He only played five Championship matches in 2015 but that did not spot some from considering his place in the England U19 side against Australia, where he shared captaincy duties with Haseeb Hameed, and wondering if he could become the first Glamorgan player to represent the full England side since Simon Jones starred in their memorable 2005 Ashes success.
He has a strong Glamorgan pedigree: his great uncle, Bernard Hedges, played 422 matches for the county between 1950 and 1967.
Donald, a middle-order batsman from Swansea, has developed well through age-group and second XI cricket. He was picked for England Under-19s and made his Glamorgan first-class debut in the final match of the season where he made 59 at roughly a run a ball against Hampshire in the second innings.
Donald was first given a chance in the Glamorgan second XI in 2012 and a year later became a regular while also playing a key role for Mumbles who won the South Wales Premier League.

Returning to Test cricket after a long layoff, Mohammed Shami ran up with noticeably shorter strides and dismantled West Indies' top order with pace and bounce
Shorter matches spell good news for spectators and broadcasters. Cricket has a little to lose and a whole lot to gain by truncating its premier format
A crushing victory over Pakistan gave England plenty to be pleased about but familiar concerns remain over the make-up of the side
