VIDEO: Aussies watch out! Seven-year-old Crawley boy shows his batting prowess

After losing the Ashes, the Australians will be looking at ways they can bounce back against a triumphant England side.

But they best start planning for the future now if they come up against Joseph Bryant in 15 years time.

The seven-year-old St Margaret’s School pupil was filmed by his dad Phil in their house in Gossops Green.

The video, posted on Youtube by his brother Harry, 15, shows Joseph, who plays for Three Bridges u-9s, playing a variety of shots including a reverse sweep.

Harry posted this caption with the video ‘My 7 year old brother Joseph looking good in our, er, indoor net...#Doesn’tDoSingles’

Dad Phil said: “Joseph just loves playing cricket and he really enjoyed his summer with Three Bridges.
