Sam Billings in England Performance Squad

Kent wicketkeeper-batsman has been selected in a 30-man Performance Squad for the 2016 summer season.

This includes the 22 players who are centrally contracted and incrementally contracted. The additional eight players, currently in the County system, make up the rest.

ECB Director of England Cricket, Andrew Strauss, added:“This is the first time in two seasons we have selected an England Performance Squad.

"I feel that it is important that we do so to enable our staff to monitor effectively those players who are on our radar, but not necessarily part of one of the England teams. It is also important to point out that it does not confine the selectors to pick from this squad.”
