A superb first season

Solihull-born Rob entered the 2019 season hoping to make a good impression for the 2nds and perhaps get a first-team game or two along the way.

He ended it with a maiden championship century under his belt and as a regular in the Bears’ red-ball team, having played 12 championship games and scored 570 runs, plenty of them important runs for the team, scored under pressure.

“Rob has grasped his opportunity in the first team with both hands. He has excellent character and I expect his century last summer to be the first of many that we see from him in a Warwickshire shirt.”

The 20-year-old, a product of Moseley from the age of eight and the Warwickshire age-groups from under 10s, impressed a lot of good judges with batting of composure, technique and application.

He has the skills to suggest a big future. He also has an impressive, well-balanced temperament – despite that strong first season, he’s not getting giddy.

“I’ll just take it as it comes,” he said. “I’ll work hard and do what I am told to do to the best of my ability. I try not to overthink. Cricket is quite a high-pressure environment so the more pressure you take off yourself then, theoretically, the easier it becomes.”
