The immensely talented Liam Dawson started off as a left-arm spinner but then with spectacular performances with the bat he turned into an all-rounder. His talent was spotted pretty early when he was selected for the England Under-19s at the age of 16 for the tour of Malaysia in 2006-07 and in one of the matches; he ended up with figures of 6/9. His spectacular all-round abilities made sure that he achieved the feat of making List A and first-class debuts before the age of 18. With consistent performances, he slowly became an integral part of the Hampshire team. In 2012, he was part of Hampshire’s winning T20 squad that clinched the domestic T20 title and was added to the Champions League T20 squad as well.
