Staff, boys and the wider school community at St John’s Beaumont would like to congratulate old boy Zafar Ansari for gaining his first Cap for the England Test Side, having been selected to play in the second test against Bangladesh in Dhaka.

Zafar spent 9 years as a pupil at St John’s before going Hampton School on an academic scholarship.  Subsequent years saw him gain a double-first degree at Cambridge University and representing Surrey CCC.

We wish Zafar the very best for his ongoing cricket career, and look forward to watching him take his first wicket, and score his first runs for England.
