Gary Ballance Profile

Gary Ballance is a top-order left-handed batsman who is very strong square of the wicket with his cut shots. Ballance who was born in Zimbabwe has gone on to become the new no.3 for England in Test cricket after the exit of Jonathan Trott.

Gary Ballance, who is a relative of former Zimbabwe Captain Dave Hougton, had moved to England in 2006 after representing the African nation at various age levels. This left-hander started off with Derbyshire but now currently plays for Yorkshire.

Gary Ballance is a left-handed top order batsman from Yorkshire. He is the latest find in the English batting line-up, especially in Test cricket. Ballance made it to the English team at the expense of the reliable no.3 Jonathan Trott who faded away because of mental disintegration during an Ashes Series in 2013 caused by the anxiety of handling the fiery pace of Mitchell Johnson.

Ballance who was born in Zimbabwe had represented his birth country at the Under 19 level playing for them in the 2006 World Cup at the age of just 16! Gary Ballance is quite an old-fashioned batsman who looks to settle in and accumulate his runs rather than taking the attack to the opposition.
