Ambitions (cricket): My greatest ambition is to play Test cricket. Other ambitions include playing English county cricket, IPL, Big Bash and maybe Caribbean Premier League.

Ambitions (life): My back-up plan is to focus on my studies in order to go on to study sports medicine with a view to being a physiotherapist.

Local hero: PlayerJoshua Gilbert. He is always willing to give some of his time to talk with me and is also a good source of knowledge.
