2012 B1 Player of the Year Dave Gavrilovic was the only England player to make their international debut during the recent Blind Cricket T20 World Cup.

The Northants Steelbacks Captain, 28, who was an unused member of England’s Ashes squad earlier in 2012, played in four of the side’s group stage matches including against England’s eventual fellow semi finalists India, Pakistan & Sri Lanka.

Gavrilovic follows Keryn Seal & Pete Blueitt as just the third person to start off in blind cricket as a partially sighted player & end up playing for England when a B1.

Sussex youngster Jimmy Millard also made his first England appearance, but as a substitute fielder for four overs versus South Africa in the group stage.
