Profile

Sam Billings' growing reputation was illustrated when he called into England's 30-man provisional squad for the 2015 World Cup when Craig Kieswetter withdraw with eye problems. That Billings had become a player to be reckoned with was apparent from the moment he blitzed an unbeaten 135 from 58 balls against Somerset in a 50-over tie at Canterbury. Marcus Trescothick, Somerset's former England captain, identified Billings as a potential rival for Jos Buttler, quite an accolade considering Buttler's Somerset roots, and said: "Billings absolutely annihilated us.".
