Veteran fast bowler Steffan Jones coaches Somerset cricket hopeful

A 16-year-old student from Somerset is hoping to become the country's next 90mph fast bowler.

Aadil Rashid, a student at Wellington School, is being coached by former fast bowler Steffan Jones.

The rugby-playing, former Somerset, Northants, Kent and Wales stalwart, took up a teaching post at the school in 2011.

He said: "He [Aadil] has the most biomechanical, efficient action I've seen in a youngster.

"He's really explosive at the crease and he can bowl genuinely quickly for his age."
