Zak Crawley out to prove he is no ‘one-hit wonder’ after epic 267 against Pakistan

Zak Crawley out to prove he is no 'one-hit wonder'


The Test career of Crawley’s mentor, Rob Key, serves as a cautionary tale

Zak Crawley isn’t really the sort to go in for tubthumping, nor would he ever claim to be the one and only. But he has insisted he doesn’t want to be remembered as a “one-hit wonder” as he heads into England’s series in Sri Lanka looking to build on his breakthrough as a Test cricketer.

Crawley’s most recent Test innings was a monumental 267 against Pakistan, his maiden international hundred. It was an innings of both class and enormity that seemed to announce him, at 22, as a major new talent on the world stage, but while Crawley admitted he took confidence from the performance, he said that he still has a lot to do to secure a long-term place in the side.

That’s understandable, for Crawley’s mentor is the former Kent batsman, Rob Key. And while Key looked to have secured his place in the England side for the foreseeable future when he scored 221 against West Indies at Lord’s in 2004, just six months and six Tests later, he was dropped and never recalled. It would prove to be his only Test hundred.
