Q: Dear Sir/Madam, My name is Ben Watt. I am currently studying A-Level PE and part of my coursework is to write about Local and National sport. As I am a massive cricket fan and player, I have decided to do cricket for this coursework. I would be really grateful if you could send me some information about how do I could play for a county team and compete nationally and then play for the England. Also I would like to know about funding and the organsiation of the ECB, provisons for womens cricket and the disabled. Many Thanks, Ben Watt
A: Hi Ben
There is no one route to come through and play at international level; apart from needing a huge amount of talent obviously.
There is a natural progression through county age-group sides, into Second XI and county cricket; and the cream rising to play for England. But there could be various permutations depending on how quickly players progress and their abilities are polished.
