This guy turns 24 tomorrow and his domestic cricket stats are pretty good:

I wonder what possible reason the selectors keep overlooking him. Injury prone? Attitude?

Here’s an article of him last year in the Daily Mirror:

I recall Vaasy talking highly of him about 5 years ago. But this guy has literally disappeared from the scene. 6 ft 6 in is as tall as Jason Holder! Watching videos of him online looks like he’s a good seam bowler who can get bounce. He would have been a really good addition for the ODI squad for the WC and even now moving forward.
