Biography

Born and raised in Zimbabwe where his parents were tobacco farmers, Gary Ballance moved to England in 2006, having already represented his birth nation in an ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup aged just 16 years old. Good domestic performances saw the batsman chosen for his one-day international debut in September 2013 against Ireland, where he scored a duck on debut. Ballance's second ODI outing was much more satisfying, as he scored 79 against Australia. That performance remains Ballance's best from his first 12 ODIs and the batsman missed the late-2014 series against Sri Lanka, but he earned a recall to the side for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
