Phil Salt can’t wait to give England coaches a proper look at what he can do.

The hard-hitting Sussex batsman is one of 55 players selected for ECB coaching sessions ahead of what it is hoped will be a belated but busy international season.

Salt will train one-to-one with a coach at Hove under strict anti-Covid controls before joining group sessions at the Ageas Bowl.

It could lead to a first cap after he missed out on a debut in last year’s T20 against Pakistan.

Salt told The Argus: “England haven’t really had much of a look at me before apart from my first call-up to the squad for the Pakistan game in Cardiff.

“I’m not one of those guys who has come through the set-up.

“They’ve not seen much of me apart from footage and maybe selectors Ed Smith and James Taylor coming to the odd game.

“It is exciting for me to get down there and just show them a bit more of what I am about, what I can do and have those conversations with the coaches.”
