Ethan Bamber finished the 2018 Under -19 World Cup in New Zealand as England's joint leading wicket-taker and is seeking to develop his county career while studying Theology at Exeter University, not out of any strong religious conviction, just because he finds religion intriguing.
Bamber is the son of two actors, David Bamber and Julia Swift: his father David played Hitler alongside Tom Cruise in the 2008 film Valkyrie. By his own admission, he was a "terrible" actor and with some input from his brother Theo he turned belatedly to cricket and first represented Middlesex at Under-15 level.
Bamber's development has been inconsistent, but he rewarded Middlesex's faith with a strong contribution in the later stages of the 2018 season. He took 28 wickets in six Division Two matches at 20.25, finding the accuracy that has at sometimes deserted him, unsurprisingly for one so young.
