Matthew William Parkinson (born 24 October 1996) is an English cricketer who plays for Lancashire. He made his international debut for the England cricket team in November 2019.[1] His twin brother, Callum, plays cricket for Leicestershire.[2]

Career[edit]

A leg-spin bowler, Matt Parkinson made his first-class debut on 20 June 2016 for Lancashire against Warwickshire in the 2016 County Championship, taking 5 for 49 in the first innings.[3] He made his Twenty20 debut for Lancashire in the 2017 NatWest t20 Blast on 16 July 2017.[4] He toured the West Indies with the England Lions in 2017-18, taking 4 for 26 in the final 50-over match against West Indies A and winning the player of the match award.[5]

In September 2019, he was named in England's Test and Twenty20 International (T20I) squads for their series against New Zealand.[6] He made his T20I debut for England, against New Zealand, on 5 November 2019.[7] The following month, Parkinson was named in England's One Day International (ODI) squad for their series against South Africa.[8] He made his ODI debut on 4 February 2020, for England against South Africa.[9] Later the same month, Parkinson was also named in England's Test squad for their series against Sri Lanka.[10]

On 29 May 2020, Parkinson was named in a 55-man group of players to begin training ahead of international fixtures starting in England following the COVID-19 pandemic.[11][12] On 17 June 2020, Parkinson was included in England's 30-man squad to start training behind closed doors for the Test series against the West Indies.[13][14] On 9 July 2020, Parkinson was also included in England's 24-man squad to start training behind closed doors for the ODI series against Ireland.[15][16] However, on 21 July 2020 in the first intra-squad practice match, Parkinson suffered an ankle injury, and was ruled out of the ODI series.[17]

In December 2020, Parkinson was named as one of seven reserve players in England's Test squad for their series against Sri Lanka.[18] In January 2021, he was also named as a reserve player in England's Test squad for their series against India.[19]
