England Cricket

The ECB runs a number of England teams that compete on a global stage:

Our England teams have the ability to engage and inspire on and off the field. We invest in developing and creating winning England teams and play a range of formats – Tests, 50-over One Day Internationals and 20-over T20s. Grassroots and the elite game go hand-in-hand; every domestic and England player begins their journey on a local pitch. 

England Men and England Women – led by Eoin Morgan and Heather Knight respectively – are both currently 50-over world champions. The England Men’s Test team are captained by Joe Root.

ECB Performance Centre

Based at Loughborough University in its own state-of-the-art facility, the Performance Centre is the hub for England’s aspiring cricketers as well as a training and rehab centre for players across all England teams.

The philosophy is to identify and select the most talented cricketers, and working hand in hand with the counties and regional sides across the country, to develop them and help them to achieve their potential.

The Performance Centre is the year-round base for the England Women’s team, and the England Women’s Academy, and also plays host to age-group competitions as part of the talent pathway.

The Men’s Performance pathway – under the guidance of the ECB's Performance Director, Mo Bobat – features the Young Lions (England U19s) and the England Lions team and incorporates technical, tactical, mental, physical and lifestyle development hand in hand with the England Men’s team.
