Tom Kohler-Cadmore says he is confident of being able to contribute at the highest level should England hand him a debut opportunity this summer.
The Yorkshire batsman, 25, is part of England’s 55-man ‘back to training’ squad ahead of potential home series across all formats against the West Indies, Pakistan, Ireland and Australia.
Kohler-Cadmore toured Australia with the Lions at the start of the year and is the only one of Yorkshire’s six in the training squad who has not yet made a full international appearance.
Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Joe Root and David Willey are the others.
Kohler-Cadmore, the county’s leading run-scorer across all formats last summer with 1,729 runs, returns to training at Emerald Headingley within the next 10 days or so and is itching to get going.
He admits it will be strange adhering to some new rules put in place at Emerald Headingley to guard against Coronavirus, but he has praised the England and Wales Cricket Board and Yorkshire for the planning and implementation of all the preventative measures.
“It was so nice to get the call telling me I was in the squad, but the main thing is just being allowed to return to training and to get to hit some balls,” he said.
“It’s been that long, and we’re all missing cricket. For me to be able to have a start date has been brilliant.
