England cricket manager Tom Harrison wrote to his colleagues at Cricket Australia to ask if young English players would be allowed to perform at Sheffield Shield.

Shield is a domestic first-class Australian competition, but unlike the district championships, the presence of overseas players is rare.

English spinner Mason Crane played a solitary match for New South Wales in 2017 after the state saw spinners Nathan Lyon and Steven O’Keefe called up for international duty.

Crane was selected only because he was already in New South Wales, where he worked with former Australian spinner Stuart MacGill and played top-class cricket for the Gordon Cricket Club.

The 24-year-old became the first overseas player to play for New South Wales in 32 years and collected five goals in the match.

Harrison now wants more young players to get a chance to play first-class cricket in Australia, according to the latest English ashes humiliation.

I keep talking BBC Harrison said: “In fact, we need to spend a lot more time with the players in Australian conditions.

“I had a number of conversations with Cricket Australia and officially wrote Cricket Australia to ask them if they would consider allowing us to include players in Sheffield Shield cricket, for example, as one important change we can make.

“We had to cancel a lot of the individual players’ preparation plans – which would include time in Australia – because of [ Covid-19 ] the pandemic because Australia was actually closed and many other tours that were planned to allow us to better prepare for this tour had to be postponed. ”

Former English bowler Isa Guha thinks this would be a good move, and told News Corp: “Some good cricketers are doing well in the BBL from England and I think they could have a big impact on Sheffield Shield cricket as well.

“Fans and broadcasters want competitions … it’s certainly in Cricket Australia’s interest to say, ‘yes, some of your players who will be part of Ashes can come here and play a few games at our Sheffield Shield.’ “
