The right-arm quick can create decent speed and bowl consistently at 140kph or over. In his first four matches, Wood claimed 14 wickets and his work rate was horsemen like, but nevertheless, he had been missed for the third Ashes Test, Steven Finn replaced him. However, as a result of his raw pace and precision, Wood continued to be on the selectors’ radar.
He had his share of injuries and has missed out on plenty of action. He though had a terrific outing to the built-up before the ICC World Cup 2019. He impressed everyone with his pace and precision and was therefore included in the World Cup Squad.
