Riley Meredith made his first-class debut in November 2017, while his T20 debut came in February 2018 when he played for the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League.

In first-class cricket, he has played 16 matches (29 innings) so far and taken 51 wickets with an average of 31.78 and an economy of 3.62. His best bowling performance is 5 wickets for 98 runs.

Meredith has played 21 T20Is so far and taken 27 wickets at an average of 23.03 and an economy of 8.22. His best performance in T20s is 4 wickets for 21 runs. In 19 List A matches, he has taken 25 wickets at an average of 36.80 and an economy of 5.50. His best performance in List A is 4 wickets for 42 runs.

Meredith’s biggest strength is his ability to consistently bowl at a pace of more than 140 kph. Probably this is what has encouraged selectors to pick him for the tour against England in September 2020.

Daniel Sams’s profile

Daniel Sams is a bowling all-rounder from Australia. Born on 27 October 1992, Sams comes from Milperra, New South Wales. He bowls left-arm fast-medium and bats right-handed.

Sams, who is yet to play for the Australian cricket team, made his first-class debut for Canterbury in October 2017. Two months later, in December 2017, he made his T20 debut in the Big Bash League for Sydney Sixers.

Sams, who was a replacement for injured Henry Thornton, signed his BBL 07 contract just a day before the game. In his first BBL match, he proved why he deserved to be there. He picked up 4 wickets for 14 runs in a game against the Thunder.

Daniel Sams had a successful BBL season last year as well. He finished the highest wicket-taker. Sams took 30 wickets in 17 games, the most by any bowler in the BBL and fifth-best in T20 tournaments.

The performance helped him reserve a place in Australia’s squad for the England tour which was confirmed by Cricket Australia on 14 August. However, he is yet to feature in the playing XI.

Sams will also take part in the IPL 2020. He was signed by Delhi Capitals as a replacement for England’s Jason Roy who opted out due to personal reasons. This will be Daniel Sams first IPL season.
