Sam Northeast wants to play for England

Glamorgan batter Sam Northeast said he wants to play for England. 32-year-old recently smashed 410* in a County match against Leicestershire.

Sam Northeast said, “At 32 I still believe that time is on my side to a certain degree. I would love to (play for England), so hopefully I can keep up putting numbers on the board. I don’t expect to get 400 every week, but if I can be consistent and score more runs by the end of the season I would like to put myself in the mix.”

Matt Maynard, our coach came (to me) and said if you want to go for it then do it,” Northeast said. He further added, “We have got a game to win here, but I understand you are never going to get an opportunity to break the record. We sort of agreed as a team that wasn’t going to be the case.”
