A Day in the Life of… Jamie Overton

Today sees the start of England’s tour of Sri Lanka, playing at the top level requires total dedication and continual work toward improvement. Here’s an insight in to up and coming bowler Jamie Overton’s daily routine, Jamie currently plays for Somerset County Cricket Club and is a future England hopeful.


Wake up! Get some breakfast.


Arrive at the ground for practice.


Practice starts at 10 for 2 hours. Usually I would bowl about four overs in a net, then have a bat later on when all the main batters have finished.


After practice I go and get some lunch.


At around 2 I would go into the gym and get a strength or Olympic lifting session done for the week. Usually consists of squats or cleans.


From about 3.30pm I am free and if the weather is nice I might go and play some golf or I just relax in front of the television and play on the PS3.


At about 10.30 I go to bed and get some sleep.
