Phil Salt and Will Jacks shine in England’s future as they take on WI in 3rd ODI

1 min read

In just only four matches, the opening pair of Phil Salt and Will Jacks has proven to be formidable, forming four fifty partnerships. In Salt’s own words, Jacks is the best partner he has ever batted with in white-ball cricket, with a strong ability to rotate the strike. However, Salt’s own role as the aggressor has meant that he has departed early on all four occasions he has batted with Jacks. Salt acknowledges his high-risk, high-reward style and the pressure to perform, as he competes for a spot with Jacks and the returning Bairstow in England’s white-ball squad. Despite this, Salt is excited about the opportunity to play in the country where he spent much of his childhood, Barbados. The final ODI match of the series presents a chance for Salt to showcase his skills and contribute to an England victory. With the series tied at one-all, Salt is hopeful that he and Jacks can put together a complete performance now that they better understand the playing conditions.
