Rawlins is one of eight English players awarded an Overseas Placement this winter.
Explaining the purpose of the Overseas Placements, the ECB’s Performance Director said, “By exposing talented young players to an unsupported, unstructured cricket programme in a challenging overseas environment, the aim of Overseas Placements is to develop the skills and also independence required to be a successful international cricketer.”
