Sam Billings, an inventive cricketer, and fiercely-competitive all-round sportsman, made his England debut against New Zealand at Edgbaston in 2015, part of a new-look England side committed to adventurous cricket to banish the depression of a failed and conservative World Cup campaign.
Billings, 23, replaced the former England gloveman Jones behind the stumps at the start of Kent’s 2014 Championship season and emphasised his 50-over potential in the Royal London One-Day Cup, becoming the leading run-scorer in the competition, Only his T20 performances disappointed.
An innings of 143 off 113 balls against Derbyshire at Canterbury – the highest one-day total by a Kent batsman at the St Lawrence Ground – was the highlight of a promising 2012 season. Billings had also scored a century, for Loughborough MCCU, on his first-class debut, against Northants in 2011. Islamabad United‘s fans are anxiously waiting to see Billings in action during PSL-T20 2016
