Will Jacks Profile
November 21, 1998
Will Jacks, the right-handed batter and right-arm off-spinner, has been a star in the making for the England cricket team for a while now. In 2018, he was part of the U19 World Cup as a vice-captain. In the same year, he made his First-class, List A and T20 debut for Surrey.
But his headline-making achievement that year was a 25-ball century in a T10 match against Lancashire, which included six sixes in an over as well. In the next couple of years, his development as a cricketer continued, as it quickly became evident that his batting along with bowling can be a key asset for any team.
A couple of solid seasons with Surrey made him knock on the door of international cricket, but it was his century in The Hundred 2022 for Oval Invincibles which officially launched him. His 48-ball 108 remains the highest score in the tournament. He went on to make his T20I debut for England later that year against Pakistan, scoring a 22-ball 40. He also made his Test debut against the same opposition, picking up a six-wicket haul.
His ability to hit the ball and score at a brisk pace along with his skills with the ball, makes him a handy pick for the Pretoria Capitals for the inaugural season of the SA20.
