Peter Nevill receives his Baggy Green from Steve Waugh

It’s a dream come true for any young cricketer in Australia to wear the Baggy Green and the Lord’s Test presented the opportunity to the 29-year-old Peter Nevill.

The cricketer, who plays for New South Wales, is filling up for wicketkeeper Brad Haddin, who made himself unavailable for the second Ashes Test. Very few cricketers get the opportunity to make a Test debut at the Mecca of cricket The Lord’s and Nevill will want to make it count. Nevill is rated very highly in the Australian circuit and former cricketer Greg Matthews has also described him as the “new Alan Knott.”
