Born in Swindon, Craig Miles is Gloucestershire's brightest young prospect. Mark Alleyne, a former favourite at the county both as captain and coach, where he led the county to seven one-day titles in five seasons, expressed his belief in 2015 that Miles had the ability to play for England, describing the slim pace bowler as reminiscent of a young Stuart Broad.
He was thrust into senior cricket aged just 16 in 2011 when an injury on the opening day of Gloucestershire's Championship match against Northamptonshire at Bristol required Miles to play. He didn't disgrace himself and returned two years later much stronger and fitter and took 43 wickets at 30.58 as a key part of Gloucestershire's attack. He was rewarded with a contract until the end of the 2017 season.
During the winter of 2013-14 he was part of the ECB's Potential England Performance Programme but injured his back training at Loughborough and missed the first half of the season. He returned in July and took 18 wickets at 19.88 in the remaining four Championship matches of the season. Further success in 2015 earned him a place in the EPP fast-bowling camp and put him on the shortlist as the PCA's breakthrough player.
