Born in Swindon, Craig Miles is Gloucestershire's brightest young prospect. He was thrust into senior cricket aged just 16 in 2011 when an injury on the opening day of Gloucestershire's Championship match against Northamptonshire at Bristol required Miles to play. He didn't disgrace himself and returned two years later much stronger and fitter and took 43 wickets at 30.58 as a key part of Gloucestershire's attack. He was rewarded with a contract until the end of the 2017 season.
During the winter of 2013-14 he was part of the ECB's Potential England Performance Programme but injured his back training at Loughborough and missed the first half of the season. He returned in July and took 18 wickets at 19.88 in the remaining four Championship matches of the season and eight scalps in helping his side reach the 50-over quarter-final.
Quite a few of England's players over the years have been born outside England. Do you know where?
What makes this innocuous-seeming bowler so difficult to handle?
