Jamie Overton is a right-arm fast bowler who plays for Somerset in the English county. His identical twin, Craig Overton too plays for the same county and has a similar bowling action. Jamie made his debut for Somerset in 2012 at the age of 18 against Surrey. He made some heads turn his way with a fiery piece of fast bowling against Australia in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in 2012, touching speeds of 90 kmph consistently. He finally earned his name in the England squad for the ODI series against Australia and Ireland in 2013.
