TEAMS

Saqib Mahmood's powerful physique and impressive pace meant that the ECB have kept close tabs on him since his teenage years, and he earned a maiden England call-up after an impressive 2019 season for Lancashire. While able to move the new ball with conventional swing and seam movement, Mahmood stands out most when reversing the ball later in an innings, and has regularly been clocked at 90mph.

Born in Birmingham but raised in Rochdale, Mahmood played for England Under-19s as a 17-year-old and quickly became a regular, leading the attack with gusto in the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh in 2016 - only two bowlers took more wickets in the competition.

While opportunities were often scarce for Lancashire, he remained in the ECB's thoughts, taking part in a fast-bowling camp in Potchefstroom to prepare for the 2017 summer before being named in the Lions squad to shadow the Ashes party in Australia the following winter.

A side strain meant he missed almost all of the 2018 summer, but he returned to Lions duty that winter, though visa hold-ups, caused in part by his Pakistani heritage, meant he missed the series against India A. He was player of the tournament in the 2019 One-Day Cup, leading the wicket-taking charts with 28, and his form across all formats meant a call-up to England's Test and T20 squads for the New Zealand tour in 2019-20.
