David Willey Biography


David Willey is an English cricketer, who represents Yorkshire in county cricket. He was born on 28 February 1990 at Northampton. Willey is a left-arm fast medium bowler and a more than a handy batsman. His father, Peter Willey, is a former English cricketer and international umpire.


Background


With the ability to swing the new ball and a good hand at the bat, Willey got his first chance in county cricket when Northamptonshire signed him in 2009. He played against Leicestershire and scored 60 runs in the debut match.


David’s true abilities bestowed colours in the T20 cricket. He registered a bowling average of 11.30 in the 2009 T20 competition. With some indispensable contributions with the bat and 43 wickets with the ball, he aided his team to the title in the 2012 Friends Life T20 Championship.


Willey joined Yorkshire for a three years contract starting from the 2016 season.


Debut


Willey made his ODI debut for England on 8 May 2015 against Ireland. He dismissed Andy Balbirnie as his first wicket in international cricket. However, the match was later abandoned due to rain.


He booked himself a place in the England squad for the series against New Zealand in June 2014. He played the final three games of the series and took seven wickets. Willey was leaking runs but at the same time, he was taking wickets which helped his team win the series 3-2.


He made his T20I debut on 23 June 2015 where he ended up with figures of 3-22 to assist his team to victory.


Rise to Glory


Willey’s best days in international cricket were those spent during the 2016 World T20 in India. He took two wickets and added 57 runs with Moeen Ali for the eighth wicket to chase a target of 141 runs set by Afghanistan.


Low Points


A useful limited overs cricketer, Willey leaks away runs when the bowl is not swinging. This problem has resulted in his inconsistent form over the years. Injuries have also constricted his success at the international level.


Club Career


Willey was signed by the Perth Scorchers for the 2015-16 season of Big Bash League in Australia. With good performances at the back, he ensured his place for the next two seasons.
