Meteoric rise

In April 2021, Chris was approaching the end of his studies at Durham University and hoping that the following months would bring a crack at his dream of becoming  a professional cricket.

In the subsequent 12 months, he has more than lived the dream.

An aggressive and enterprising batsman, his impressive form for the Bears Second XI earned elevation to the First XI and that was just the start.

“We’re delighted that Chris has committed his immediate future to the county. Chris has shown his incredible talent not just in front of the Warwickshire Members, but on the world stage too in The Hundred.”

From nowhere, he was awarded a Hundred contract with Birmingham Phoenix and excelled there. Back with the Bears, he scored a maiden first-class century and earned a three-year deal at Edgbaston

“It’s an absolute dream,” he says. “To call Edgbaston your home is incredible and I’m really excited to be able to do that for the next three years and hopefully a lot longer.”
