England tour for Colwall star
5:20pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Sport
COLWALL batsman Sam Crichard says he is not expecting any second chances in the England Deaf squad’s tour of South Africa.
The 21-year-old from Aylton, near Ledbury, arrives in the southern hemisphere tomorrow for four one-day internationals and two Twenty20 clashes.
Crichard is part of a 14- man England squad, captained by Middlesex’s Umesh Valjee, in his maiden tour with the side.
“I have previously been to Barbados while touring with Herefordshire and that was something special,” said Crichard.
“But I have not been abroad for three years and a first England tour is something that I am really excited about.
“I have been working hard to get my place in the starting line-up for the tour but nothing is ever guaranteed.”
