Explosive skills

Like fellow Bears wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Ambrose, ‘Burgs’ arrived at Edgbaston from Sussex – and just like Amby he offers the team loads both behind the stumps and with the bat.

An aggressive, entertaining batter, he is a potential match-winner in the white-ball formats.

“In addition to being an excellent, young gloveman, Michael is a hard-hitting batsman who has experienced domestic cricket on the biggest stage.”

But he has his sights firmly set on nailing down a Bears first-team spot in all comps and his skills were showcased perfectly in the red-ball format on the last day of the championship match against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge late last season.

His explosive unbeaten half-century saw the Bears over the line in a brilliant run chase.

The Epsom-born 25-year-old is brimming with natural talent – and you get the feeling a thoroughbred season could be just round the corner.
