English cricketer Zak Crawley represents Kent County Cricket Club. In 1998, on February 3rd, Zak was born. 

Crawley debuted in the second Test of England’s tour of New Zealand in November 2019. He scored 267 runs in 2020 and was selected as one of the Wisden cricketers of 2021. Rob Key is Crawley’s mentor. His mentor was a former Kent captain named Director of Men’s Cricket by the England and Wales Cricket Board in 2022.

Career Achievements

At the time of Zak Crawley’s selection, his statistics didn’t appear particularly impressive. However, given his promise and England’s evident need for toughness, his selection was not unexpected.

Career-wise, Crawley had only three first-class centuries and a first-class average of 31.27, with a County Championship average of just 34.16. However, two of those hundreds came against formidable fast-bowling teams. One of these teams was from Warwickshire with Ryan Sidebottom and Henry Brookes. The other team was from Nottinghamshire, with James Pattinson and Jake Ball. 

Consequently, he gained several well-known fans. Crawley plays well against fast bowling.

The numbers are worse for Crawley. He has participated in each of England’s last 18 Test matches. His career Test average is 27.60 from 33 games with three hundred. However, since his century and a half against Pakistan in the Rawalpindi Test, he has gone eight innings without reaching the fifty-run mark.

Ashes Test Match

Zak Crawley believes his team will defeat Australia in the second Ashes Test at Lord’s. Contrary to his belief, Australia won the first test by two wickets. This happened because of England’s controversial declaration in the first innings.

Ben Stokes, the captain, defended his choice to declare in the first innings. He stated that he hoped to surprise Australia with it. The team’s coach, Brendon McCullum supported their choice and encouraged them to play courageous cricket.

On June 28, the second Test at Lord’s began, and England hoped to tie the series. Australia emerged victorious in the first Test by two wickets. Prior to the second Test, Crawley discussed his team’s mentality with Times Radio.

“I think we’ll win. I think the pitch will suit us a bit more, so I think we’ll win by, I don’t know, 150 runs?” Crawley said on Times Radio.

He added that his team’s “Bazball” strategy for playing Test cricket concerns more than victories and losses. He claimed that having fun while playing cricket is equally important.

During the third Ashes test match, Stuart Brood trapped David Warner. This gave English an opportunity to perform the best. However, Warner surrendered to Stuart. This made Zak Crawley slip a nicked delivery.

The fourth Test between Pat Cummins’ Australia and Ben Stokes’ England will occur from July 19 to 23 at  Old Trafford in Manchester.
