More likely to be privately educated than peers in the House of Lords
A 2019 British report found that men’s cricket in England was skewed towards those who attended private schools. The national team at the time, with a 43% fee-paying make-up, made the top 10 professions with the highest independent school attendance. The 82% make-up of the England side puts it comfortably at the top, looming over High Court judges and the House of Lords, and peering down upon diplomats and the Armed Forces.
