Profile

Tom Westley, a modest and articulate Durham graduate, has quietly established himself as one of Essex's most talented young players. A former England U-19, Westley was back on the national selectors' radar by late 2014, when, aged 25, he joined the England Performance Programme's batting and spin camp in Sri Lanka. That followed a breakthrough year in white-ball cricket, in which he averaged 57.33 in the Royal London Cup and 44.83 in T20, with three centuries across the formats. His capable offspin also continues to develop under the guidance of former Essex and England spinner Peter Such.
