Marsh Cup 2020-21 – Oliver Davies soaking up every chance to learn from the best

When Oliver Davies’ father Kevin was doing his carpentry apprenticeship, he didn’t have the fortune of being mentored by the world’s best craftsmen.

But Davies’ professional cricket apprenticeship, which is barely six months old, has already featured some valuable lessons from a host of the world’s best limited-overs players. And there are more to come, as he has been included in New South Wales Marsh Cup squad alongside Steven Smith and new NSW captain Pat Cummins.

“I’m hoping to get a game. That would be absolutely amazing,” Davies told ESPNcricinfo. “But I guess I’m going to be running drinks for Steve Smith and Pat Cummins so either way I’m going to be learning a lot.”

Davies, 20, announced himself as a future star with two stunning innings in his first two BBL games for Sydney Thunder. He made 36 off 22 balls against Perth Scorchers on debut, striking three huge sixes off Jason Behrendorff and Fawad Ahmed.
