"It is all a bit surreal. It hasn't sunk in yet but it is a very proud day and luckily my mum and dad were there to see it.

"Unfortunately I have got training with Lancashire at 10 o'clock in the morning, so I will be having an early night.

"But sometime in the near future, I will definitely be having a few drinks to celebrate."
