Something very different
Left-arm wrist spinner Jake joined the Bears for last season’s Vitality Blast and was a revelation, tying up and tormenting batsmen who were suddenly confronted with something very different.
Batsmen love to attack the slower bowlers in T20 and, for Jake, it is always a case of ‘bring it on’! He relishes that challenge, as shown by several match-turning performances last summer.
He impressed the Bears hierarchy enough to earn a three-year contract at Edgbaston and, whilst his teaching career is put on hold, he will be at the heart of the bowling plans, especially in white ball cricket.
