‘My job is to get the boys off to a flier’ – Phil Salt quickly takes to life with England


Opener could have represented West Indies thanks to Barbados upbringing

West Indies supporters have probably become accustomed to losing players to England. Jofra Archer was a key part of England’s World Cup side, after all, while Chris Jordan has been an integral member of the T20 team for several years.

But Phil Salt, too, could have represented West Indies. Although he was born in Wales, Salt’s family moved to Barbados when he was 10. He subsequently represented the Barbados Under-15 side and was rumoured to be close to selection for the Under-19s before committing his future to Sussex.
