Profile

Will Beer is that most sought-after commodity: an English legspinner. Those talents have been most utilised in Twenty20 cricket, where he has been a key component of Sussex's attack, but success in four-day cricket has been hard to come by. Coming through Sussex age-group cricket he had the ideal role model in Mushtaq Ahmed at Hove. In 2009 he impressed for England Under-19s against New Zealand, taking 10 wickets at 17.10. In the same year it was his performance on Twenty20 finals day, though, that grabbed attention as he blended wrist-spinning ability with guts to help Sussex take the title. Beer was part of ECB's spin-bowling programme and was mentored by the late Terry Jenner. He spent the 2011 winter at Darren Lehmann 's cricket academy in Adelaide but his progress was slow and Sussex, it seemed, would have to show considerable patience if he was to have a chance of making an impression in the first-class game.
