Will Davis is a fast bowler who has quickly established himself as a regular in the red ball format.
Another product of the Cricket Derbyshire Academy in partnership with the University of Derby development pathway, Davis was named Academy Player of the Year in 2014.
He made his first-class debut versus Australia in July 2015 where he claimed figures of 3-63 in the first innings, taking the wickets of Michael Clarke, Adam Voges and Peter Nevill and showing his potential as a fast bowler.
Is efforts earned him a call up to England under 19s tour of Australia in 2015, where he recorded bowling figures of 2-26.
Davis broke into the first team during the 2016 season, taking three wickets against Worcestershire and Kent, before taking his first five-wicket-haul for the club, and his career-best figures of 7-146 against Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay.
