Craig was educated at West Buckland School in North Devon and has progressed through the Devon age groups and the Somerset Academy.
In 2011 he was a member of the National Performance Programme and toured Sri Lanka with the England Under 19s. In 2012 he was a member of the England Under 19 World Cup squad in Australia.
Craig made his First Class debut in 2012 against Lancashire at Taunton and also his List A debut against Durham at Chester-le-Street. At the end of the season he was named Somerset Academy Player of the Year.
During that winter he was selected for the England Lions tour to Australia where he performed well. Sadly a stress fracture of the back prevented Craig playing in all but one match in 2013.
Restored to full fitness, Craig made great strides in 2014 playing in thirteen First Class matches scoring 431 runs with a highest score of 99 against Lancashire at Taunton and taking 42 wickets with a best of 5 for 63 against Durham at the same venue.
In one-day cricket Craig played in fourteen matches scoring 80 runs and taking 7 wickets in 2014.
Craig enjoyed his best season to date in 2015 during which he underlined that he is a genuine all-rounder, scoring 320 runs at an average of 29.09 with three 50s and taking 43 wickets at 21.70 with a best of 6 for 74. He also claimed 12 List A wickets at 20.83 in the six matches that he played.
During the summer of 2015 Craig was called up for the England ODI series but didn’t play. He is involved with the ECB performance programme in the winter.
