Middlesex Player of the year Sam Robson speaks about the award and how he worked on his performance.
Robson has also been selected in England Performance Programme squad and is quite excited about it.
He was quoted as saying for The Independent, "I’m not getting ahead of myself. This EPP squad is my first focus. I’m just going to try to get as much out of the programme as I can and see where it takes me. Hopefully the things that have worked for me so far will hold me in good stead.”
“At 18 you are not thinking of Test cricket. I had to come here, trial, get a contract at Middlesex and then force my way into the first team. I have done that all through this system here in England.
“Now I’ve been selected for the EPP. I was really chuffed when that came up. It feels like the natural progression to me. I’ve developed as a professional cricketer in England. It’s not like I have been here one year or two.
“But it could all come to a quick end,” he admits. “I don’t allow myself to think where I’ll be in five years. That is not my style. Yes, as a cricketer you have ambition, you want to play at the highest level, but for me it’s always been about being the best I can be, giving it a crack and seeing where that takes me. Right now it’s the EPP. That’s my commitment now.
“If you are asking me down the line if I got selected then yes, I would love to play for England. There is no doubt about that.”
