The Overton Twins

Craig and Jamie Overtons’ (05-12C) cricketing careers are going from strength to strength this season.

In June they both reached the national selection in the Royal London one-day series against New Zealand at Trent Bridge.
 
Both talented right arm bowlers (Craig: medium fast, Jamie: fast) who have reached speeds of up to 150kph, they also know how to wield a bat. Craig had an impressive innings of 99 against Lancashire last year and Jamie added 69 in 57 balls against Warwickshire in the same season.
