Delray Rawlins is backing himself to deliver the goods during a winter spell with Sydney Cricket Club in the New South Wales Premier League.

The Bermudian all-rounder, who plays for England Under-19 and County Championship side Sussex, is one of eight players awarded an Overseas Placement this winter as part of the England and Wales Cricket Board’s International Pathway programme.

“With a good group of lads around me and some great opportunities for myself over the next few months, it should be an exciting and very productive winter,” Rawlins told The Royal Gazette. “I have settled in really well. I have been here a few weeks now, getting stuck into the action. The conditions are different from back home, but they are conditions I feel I will enjoy and learn a lot from.”

During his stay in Australia the former PHC, Bailey’s Bay and St George’s Cup Match player will receive specialist coaching from Stuart MacGill, the former Australia leg spinner.
