Precocious natural talent

Jake is a top order batsman and left-arm spinner of immense natural talent who has come through the Bears academy to earn a three-year professional contract.

Born in Barbados, Jake came to Warwickshire aged 12 as part of the club’s relationship with Rugby School and its director of cricket, former Bears captain Michael Powell. He subsequently played for Warwickshire’s Under 13s county age group team and Emerging Players Programme before being awarded an Academy place in 2018.

“We’ve been closely following the progress of Jacob in the Academy over the last two years and he looks confident and assured whenever he takes a step up, whether that has been in Second XI cricket or with the Young Lions.”

Bethell took adroitly to Second XI Championship and T20 cricket and trained with the England Young Lions squad at Loughborough before making his Bears first team bow, and looking entirely at home there, in 2021.

His powerful performances for England in the Under 19s World Cup in West Indies early this year, along with a composed and likeable temperament, suggest that Jake is ready to challenge for a regular Bears first team place in 2022.
