Profile

Jake Ball, a powerfully-built pace bowler who had made his mark at Nottinghamshire primarily in white-ball cricket, made his England debut in Tests and ODIs during the 2016 season. His ODI debut was the more spectacular as he became the first England bowler to take five wickets on a one-day international debut. The fact it came in challenging conditions in Dhaka made it even more meritorious.
