ABOUT

Mark Wood Biography


Mark Wood is a professional cricketer who plays for England. He was born on 11 January 1990 in Ashington, Northumberland. He is a right arm fast bowler, capable of hitting the deck hard and a right-handed batsman.


Background


Wood joined Northumberland County in 2008 and made his debut against Norfolk. After playing for two years with them, he was signed by Durham in 2011. He took 19 wickets at an average of 21.63 in his first season. His skiddy pace helped him register 27 wickets in the 2013 winning season.


A skinny fast bowler who could bowl around the 90 kmph mark, Wood was selected in the England squad for the West Indies tour in 2015 but he couldn’t play a match.


Debut and Afterwards


Wood made his ODI debut in the rain affected match against Ireland on 8 May 2015 at Dublin. The match was called off after 18 overs of the Irish innings where Wood dismissed William Porterfield as his first international dismissal.


He made his Test debut against New Zealand in the same month at Lord’s. He registered figures of 3-93 and 1-47 in the match, which England ended up winning by 124 runs. He continued to impress with 5 wickets in the next match and a vital 19 runs with the bat.


His good performance earned him a spot in the 2015 Ashes series in England. He dismissed 4 Australian batsmen in the first test to help England go up 1-0 in the series. He was ruled out of the third ashes Test after taking a single wicket in the second Ashes test.


He registered his career best figures of 3-39 in a test against Pakistan in 2015 and followed it up with two wickets in the second innings. He was called to play in the ODI series that followed, where he took seven wickets in four matches.


Low Points


In an era of English fast bowlers like James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Steven Finn and many more, Wood has failed to make his mark in pool. He has got pace but his lack of ability to thrash the opposition in a single spell is responsible for his appearance in just 10 test matches in a career span of around three years.
