[2000-01 Season] Chris Drum made his home One Day International debut during the 1998/99 series against India. Although his figures will stand, the third ODI was abandoned due to rain. Drum had been called into the team after injuries to Geoff Allott and Simon Doull ruled those two players out. He continues to battle with Allott, Andrew Penn, Shayne O'Connor and Daryl Tuffey for a permanent place in the side. Drum was selected for the 1998 Commonwealth Games and was a standby player for the 1999 World Cup and England Test series.
