Profile

A tall, fast bowler of the McGrath mould, Peter George is a player to watch after being chosen in Test squads for tours of England and India. George's first international promotion came when he was placed on standby for Ryan Harris and spent a couple of days in New Zealand. He was also a late call-up for the Pakistan series in England - he bowled 11 overs for 14 runs against Derbyshire in a tour game - but was picked from the start for the trip to India.
