Early life

Salt was born on 28 August 1996 in Bodelwyddan, Wales. He began playing cricket in St Asaph and played for the North East Wales Under-11s. He attended school in Chester, and when he was 10 years old his family moved to Barbados. As a result, he met the Barbados residency requirement, and so was eligible to play for either England or the West Indies. Whilst in Barbados he played with future Sussex and England colleague Jofra Archer.


In May 2019, Salt was added to England’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the one-off match against Pakistan, replacing an injured Dawid Malan, but did not play. In July 2021, having previously trained with the squad earlier in the summer, Salt was named in England’s ODI squad for their series against Pakistan, after the original squad for the tour was forced to withdraw following positive tests for COVID-19. Salt made his ODI debut on 8 July 2021, for England against Pakistan. In December 2021, Salt was named in England’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for their series against the West Indies. He made his T20I debut on 26 January 2022, for England against the West Indies. In June 2022, in the opening match against the Netherlands, Salt scored his first century in ODI cricket, with 122 runs. During the match, England scored 498 runs, the highest score in ODI and List-A history, with Salt being one of three centurions alongside Dawid Malan and Jos Buttler. On 13 November 2022, Salt won the 2022 T20 World Cup with England. He made two appearances at the tournament, playing in both the semi-final and final of the competition. Salt was named in both the ODI and T20 squads for England’s 2023-24 tour of the West Indies. In the third T20I of the series, he hit his maiden T20 international century, becoming the fifth England men’s batter to do so. In the fourth T20I, he made another century, and in the process achieved several notable feats. His score of 119 was the highest score by an England men’s player in a T20 international. Salt also became the first England men’s batter to hit two centuries in international T20 cricket, and only the third men’s batter to hit back-to-back international T20 centuries. He was named as replacement of Jason Roy in the IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders. He is playing well this season. Previously, he had played for Delhi Capitals.
