GALLERY: England hero Mark Wood holding things

Features

Mark Wood is the new star of English cricket after his incredible performance in the third Test against West Indies in St Lucia.

But while everyone – apart from West Indies’ batsmen haha! – enjoyed the sight of him sending down 95mph rockets, there’s no doubt the highlight of the game came after its conclusion when Wood was handed a novelty oversized Sandals holiday voucher for his man-of-the-match performance. He was rightly reluctant to let go of his prize, to the delight of his team-mates.

Yet believe it or not this isn’t the first time Mark Wood has held something in his fast-bowling hands. Here’s a rundown of other times Mark Wood has held things.
