England are said to be seriously considering a recall for ‘fan’s favourite’ Jade Dernbach.

The South African born Surrey pacer has jumped to the front of the selection queue in light of injury concerns to various senior members of England’s bowling attack and could feature in a Three Lions shirt for the first time since 2014. It could be that the ODIs against Ireland are a perfect time to reintegrate the thirtyone-year-old.

Dernbach didn’t exactly set the world alight during his previous carnation as an international player but the England hierarchy believe that he’s matured, developed as a player and risen to the occasion. The most obvious example of Dernbach’s progress was in the 2015 One-Day cup final against Gloucestershire when, despite Surrey being beaten, Dernbach claimed figures 6-35 from 8.4 overs, including the prize scalp of Michael Klinger for a third ball duck.

If JD does get another look-in on the global stage, he’ll hope to haul that ODI bowling average of 42.19 and his T20I economy of 8.71 down just a little!
