Updated on Jan 2021:

Zak Crawley is currently with the England Test cricket squad in India, having established himself in the national side in 2020. Zak opened the batting in both Tests earlier this year in Sri Lanka and took four catches in the Second Test as England wrapped up the series.

He is currently sidelined after suffering a wrist injury, which means he will miss at least the first two Tests in India. Last year Zak won both the PCA (Professional Cricketers' Association) Young Player of the Year award and the CWC (Cricket Writers' Club) Young Cricketer of the Year award.
