Another batting talent to emerge from Essex, Velani demonstrated his immense potential in his first innings for England Under-19s in July 2011 when he top-scored with 54 to underpin a successful run-chase against South Africa. He was subsequently retained for the winter tour of Bangladesh. Velani’s Essex first-class debut came against Hampshire in 2013 before his limited-overs bows followed the next season, but he has yet to establish himself as a first-team regular.
