Sam Wood Bio

Samuel Kenneth William Wood, popularly known as Sam Wood, is a talented cricket player hailing from England. Born on May 3, 1992, Wood is a left-handed batsman who also possesses the ability to bowl right-arm off-spin. His exposure to the world of professional cricket began when he was called up as a nominee replacement for Samit Patel during a Championship match against Lancashire at Trent Bridge in June 2011.

Although Wood’s debut appearance was brief and his contribution limited to fielding and bowling four wicketless overs, he showcased his potential in his second first-class match. In this encounter, which took place 15 months later, he didn’t just make an impression with the ball but also with the bat. Against Surrey at The Oval, Wood scored an impressive 45 runs in Notts’ first innings. In addition, he troubled the opposition, dismissing Jason Roy to claim his maiden first-class wicket and finishing with figures of 3 for 64 in the home side’s second innings.

Wood’s early successes in the professional circuit paved the way for further opportunities. He teamed up with captain Chris Read in the Emirates Airlines Twenty20 competition in Dubai in 2011. Together, they scored an impressive 28 runs from just two overs, helping steer Notts into the final. Wood also gained exposure in the CB40 competition, picking up his first wickets against Lancashire when he dismissed Paul Horton and Farveez Maharoof.

The young cricketer has also showcased his talents at the youth level. In January 2011, during his second Youth Test appearance, Wood recorded scores of 130 and 95 against Sri Lanka in Colombo. The following year, he represented England in the Under-19 World Cup held in Australia. Wood’s standout performance in the tournament was a scintillating knock of 104 runs from just 111 balls, including an impressive seven sixes, against West Indies in the play-off for fifth place.

Returning to the domestic scene, Wood began the 2013 season by playing for Nottinghamshire’s second XI. His standout moment came when he took a hat-trick against Gloucestershire at Thornbury, contributing to Notts’ resounding victory.

Despite his relative youth, Wood has already displayed great promise and potential, making significant contributions to his team on multiple occasions. With his prowess as a left-handed batsman and right-arm off-spinner, Wood continues to impress both teammates and fans with his determination, skill, and ability to perform under pressure.

Samuel Kenneth William Wood has become a prominent figure in English cricket through his hard work, dedication, and remarkable performances on both domestic and international platforms. With each game, he further solidifies his place as a valuable asset to his team. As he continues to evolve and mature, it will be fascinating to witness how his career unfolds.
