England wicketkeeper-batter Sam Billings on Monday said that he is honoured to finally play an Ashes Test and his childhood dream finally came true. Billings had made his Test debut in the fifth and final Ashes Test which came to an end on Sunday. “Just want to acknowledge the incredible amount of messages and support I’ve received over the last few days. Thank you to everyone! Truly fulfilled a childhood dream to play a Test match for England in the Ashes,” tweeted Billings.

Billings managed to score 29 and 1 in the Hobart Test while also doing impressive work with the gloves in hand.
