Jon Lewis

Jonathan "Jon" Lewis (born 26 August 1975) is an English cricketer. He was brought up in Swindon where he went to Churchfields School and Swindon College. He played for Swindon CC and, in Minor Counties cricket, for Wiltshire County Cricket Club in 1993. He joined Northamptonshire in 1994 and played for its Second XI but returned to Wiltshire in 1995. In the same year, he joined Gloucestershire and made his first-class debut. He was appointed Gloucestershire captain in 2006. He has played for the English cricket team in Twenty20, One Day International and Test matches.

In 2005, Lewis was included in the England squad for the two Tests against Bangladesh, but did not play in either match. He did, however, make his first international appearance in the Twenty20 game against Australia in June, and took 4-24 in his four overs as England recorded a crushing 100-run victory. He made his One Day International debut a few days later in England's win against Bangladesh at The Oval, again impressing with 3-32 from ten overs. He was included in the 13-man squad for the home series against Sri Lanka in 2006, making his Test debut at Trent Bridge on 2 June 2006 and taking a wicket with his fourth delivery (and third legitimate ball) in Test cricket. He is the 634th player to represent England at Test cricket.

He was selected in a number of Test squads during the summer of 2006, but only played in one Test against Sri Lanka, coming to be regarded as something of a perennial 12th man.

He did however bowl well in the ODIs against Pakistan, having finally been given an extended run in the side.

Lewis was selected in England's 15 man squad for the Cricket World Cup 2007, which was held in the Caribbean. Midway through the tournament he returned to England for personal reasons, without playing a game in the World Cup. A few weeks later, Jon and his wife Kate welcomed their first child, Jacob Lewis.

His most recent appearance for England was a sole appearance in the 2007 limited overs series against India.

On 29 July 2011, it was announced that after 16 years with Gloucestershire, Lewis is to join Surrey on a two-year deal.
