Luke's Bio

A left-arm pacer with a devastating inswinger, Luke Wood is an all-rounder with the ability to clear the ropes with ease. Wood made instant impacts in Nottinghamshire Premier League cricket and the County’s age-group sides to making his debut in the County Championship when he was just a teenager. 

Wood’s rapid development continued as he was selected in the England U-19 squad and played the ODI series against Pakistan in 2013 and the following English summer he was the talisman in the U-19 squad for the ODI and Test series against South Africa. 

After bursting onto the scene in 2015, Wood's potential was recognised with a place on an ECB bowling camp but he found opportunities limited at Trent Bridge among a battery of fast bowlers that included Stuart Broad, Jake Ball, Luke Fletcher, and Harry Gurney. Still, Wood continued to feature in the limited-overs success of Worcestershire winning back-to-back T20 Vitality Blast titles in 2017 and 2018.

He went on to temporarily join Northamptonshire at the beginning of 2019 and made a good impression against Lancashire, taking his maiden First-Class five-wicket haul and scoring a half-century in the County Championship match at Emirates Old Trafford.

On being offered a new contract by Notts in 2019, Wood decided to opt-out mid-season and signed a three-year contract with Lancashire at the end of the 2019 season. Known for his commitment and some fine performances, the 25-year old has a lot of potential in the bag which makes him the most renowned all-rounder in County cricket at the moment.
