Nottinghamshire First Class Debut – 31 March 2019 v Cambridge MCCU (Fenner’s)

Nottinghamshire welcomed one of the hottest young properties in the county game when Joe Clarke agreed to join them during the recent close season.

The former Worcestershire batsman had already racked up 13 First-Class hundreds by the time he signed, as well as being an England Lions regular over the past three years.

Last summer he gave Trent Bridge regulars a glimpse of his precocious talent by making an unbeaten 177 on the ground.

Clarke was a member of the Worcestershire side that lifted the T20 Blast crown last summer and will be hoping to add to his medal collection in Nottingham.

His career switch couldn’t have got off to a better start, with innings of 112 and 97 not out, against Yorkshire on his Notts’ championship debut, followed by 139 against Lancashire on his one-day debut.
