Will Young joined Northamptonshire on the back of his success in International Cricket with New Zealand – hitting a best of 89 in a test match vs India.

The top-order batsman has hit more than 10,000 career runs, including 12 first class centuries – proving that he can offer some devasting batting power to Northamptonshire.

Breaking through in the 2011/12 season for domestic New Zealand cricket team Central Stags (formerly Central District), Young went on to be captain at only 23 years of age in 2015.

After captaining his team to the one-day Ford Trophy in 2016 and the Plunket Shield unbeaten in 2018, Young then chose to focus on his batting and playing for New Zealand.

Young made his test cricket debut for New Zealand in 2020 and has since been a main stay in the side for both test and T20I Cricket.

With a first-class average of 42 leading to over 10,000 career runs, it is exciting to see what Young can bring to Northamptonshire in the 2022 season.
