Jonny Bairstow, one of England’s most-exciting cricketers, is to be represented by International Sports Management.
The 23-year-old wicket-keeper batsman, who scored 95 in England’s third Test against South Africa at Lord’s in August, is in the squad for the upcoming tour of India.
"ISM has great experience in guiding cricketers through their careers and I’m thrilled to be joining such a world-renowned stable," said Bairstow, who was named man of the match on his international debut in September 2011, hitting an unbeaten 41 as England beat India to win the NatWest Series 3-0.
"I’m delighted Jonny is joining," said ISM managing director, Andrew 'Chubby' Chandler. "He has already enjoyed some fine moments in his career so far and I believe he can experience even more success in the future."
After scoring two hundreds for Yorkshire at the start of the 2012 season and being named man of the match in the second Twenty20 of the series against Pakistan in February, Bairstow made his Test debut against the West Indies in May.
