Craig Overton

Overton is a promising all-rounder at Somerset who followed in the footsteps of twin brother Jamie by earning a call-up to England Under-19s' squad in December 2011.

He and Jamie made their first-class and List A debuts in 2012 when Craig made his England U19 bow and was retained for the age-group World Cup.

A stress fracture to the back ruined his 2013 season but he was still placed on the ECB Potential England Performance Programme in South Africa at the start of 2014.

He played 12 games in 2014 and earned himself a call-up to the England Lions squad for the first time. Although he struggled to make an impression, he remains an exciting prospect for the national team and was selected to go on the England Performance Programme the following winter.
