Matt Lamb

Pace, bounce and swing

George is another talented youngster coming through at Edgbaston. Still only 20, he has been on the England pathway and played for England Under 19s.

In the Bears academy since the age of 14, George, who represented Shrewsbury in the Birmingham League and was captain of Shrewsbury School's first XI, is a seam-bowling all-rounder who generates good pace and bounce and swings the ball away. He got his first taste of county championship cricket last year and did not look out of place.

Also capable of delivering game-changing contributions with the bat, he is an interesting selection option in all formats.
