About George Henry Dockrell
George Dockrell is a spindly left-arm spinner of immense potential. At 17 he played a key role in IrelandS-B-Cs World Twenty20 campaign, blending nous with audacity as his flighted twirlers saw off Netherlands in the qualifying tournament before taking 3 for 16 against West Indies and choking EnglandS-B-Cs middle-order with four overs for 19 in the main event. Soon after the tournament ended he was ruled out of IrelandS-B-Cs next big game - an ODI against Australia - because he had to sit his school exams. He neednS-B-Ct have bothered as a month later, and still a week short of his 18th birthday, he was snapped up by Somerset who offered him a two-year contract.
