19-year-old Will Edwards begins an exclusive Cricket World column by giving you an overview of life as an overseas professional in New Zealand.
My name is William Edwards, I’m 19 years old and an opening batsman. I am spending the winter here in New Zealand’s North Island as an overseas professional for Onerahi Central cricket club (OC).
Throughout my time here I will be describing what I get up to, the experiences I pick up and what exactly is expected of me as an overseas professional. Back home in England I have played for teams such as Leicestershire CCC 2nd XI and Academy and Lincolnshire CCC 1st XI.
