Despite the notion that spin-bowling all-rounders are bits-and-pieces cricketers, Jacks has cemented his spot in the Surrey 2nd XI side in 2017. Before he made his first-class debut, Jacks caught the eye of many counties because of his value as an all-rounder: his miserly bowling in the age-group level and his big-hitting abilities. In the age of wrist-spin, the off-spinner has shown excellent street-smartness at a rather young age; a trait extremely well-suited for the shorter formats. A level-headed young man, he was chosen to lead England in the Youth Test against India in which he handled the responsibility well and delivered with a fantastic hundred.
Jacks made his List A debut rather recently in May 2018 against Somerset in the 2018 Royal London One-Day Cup. After two quiet games, he scored a pivotal 121 against Gloucestershire and showcased his big-hitting ability on the big stage. He made his first-class debut soon after for Surrey in June 2018, and has been used as a batsman in his first three matches, without getting a bowl on the greener tracks with the Dukes ball. He went on to make his Twenty20 debut for Surrey in the 2018 T20 Blast and has played only 3 matches without much impact with the bat or an opportunity to bowl.
Jacks has started to rise through the ranks steadily and was named vice-captain to Harry Brook for the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand in 2018. In his first chance to exhibit his talent to the world, Jacks managed 193 runs at 38.60 and 7 wickets in 6 games in an impressive performance. Alas, England failed to make it to the semi-finals and finished at fifth place. He led the side in the 5th-place playoff as Harry Brook was absent.
The young all-rounder is not even into his twenties yet, and has made quite a name for himself, not only with the bat and ball but also in terms of temperament. Possessing an astute cricketing brain, don't be surprised to see him promoted to play with the big boys in the near future. With flat pitches being the new typical English wicket, the English team may well need a big-hitting spinner for balance in the side - Will Jacks could soon don the three-lions crest on his chest.
