Profile

Jake Ball's reputation as a fast bowler of promise was cemented in 2015 when he was one of a group of young fast bowlers called up for an England Development Programme fast bowling camp and given a place on an England Lions tour of Pakistan. His breakthrough season had brought 39 Championship wickets, allied to a late-order penchant for six hitting. The rise continued early in the 2016 season when he was handed a maiden Test call-up.
