Briggs took 33 wickets at 19 in six matches, including match figures of 64-17-177-9 against Jamaica.
One should then expect Briggs to improve this summer on his 32 wickets at 39 in 2010, especially as he will form a potentially lethal spin partnership with new recruit Imran Tahir.
Many have predicted that Ireland’s left-arm spinner George Dockrell will one day represent England. They may be right, but it is likely that Briggs will be pushing him all the way.
