Toby Roland-Jones’ dream Test debut
Toby Roland-Jones enjoyed the perfect start to his Test career at The Oval against South Africa. The Old Hamptonian overcame any first-day nerves as South Africa took their turn at the crease and Toby was called upon to bowl after just seven overs. Toby Roland-Jones said he was living a boyhood dream after his four wickets in just 33 overs demolished the South African top order and left England in the driving seat of the third Test. The 29-year old took eight wickets in total during the Test, the best start to an England bowler’s Test career since 1962.
Toby is getting used to dreams coming true. His hat-trick against Yorkshire at Lord’s Cricket Ground completed a Middlesex victory in the last session of the 2016 season and brought them their first Championship for 23 years.
