Phil Salt Facts

  1. Phil and his family moved to Barbados when he was about 10 years old. The family returned to the United Kingdom about 5 years later which meant that he met the Barbados residency requirement and was eligible to play for both England and the West Indies in the future.
  2. During his time in Barbados, he also played some cricket with future Sussex County Cricket Club and England teammate Jofra Archer.
  3. Phil made his ODI (and international) debut for England in rather unusual circumstances. In early July 2021, he was named to England’s ODI squad for a 3-match bilateral home series against Pakistan after most of the members of England’s original squad were forced to withdraw following positive tests for COVID-19. It was an unexpected scenario as the cricketing world was slowly, but steadily, moving away from conducting matches in strict bio-secure bubbles and loosening various restrictions on players and coaching staff that had become the norm over the last year or so.
  4. Phil made the most of this opportunity though, scoring 104 runs across the 3 matches to help a heavily depleted English side defeat a full-strength Pakistan squad by a 3-0 margin.
  5. In June 2022, in a game against the Netherlands, Phil recorded his first century in ODI cricket. England amassed 498 runs in that match, setting a new record for the highest team total in ODI history.
