Profile

A promising left-arm spinner, Paul Best was captain of England Under-19 on their tour of Bangladesh in 2009, and was also in charge of Warwickshire's second eleven that same year. He cites his cricketing hero as Garry Sobers, although he believes his style of play is most reminiscent of Daniel Vettori. Cricinfo staff February 2010
