Bat's the way to do it! Little Charlie Allison has become the youngest ever player to land a cricketing sponsorship deal – aged just six.

The mini-player showed he could teach the woeful England side a thing or two in this jaw-dropping YouTube clip.

So far, his skills have been viewed by more than 8,000 admiring followers.

The Essex-born batsman's array of skills include a picture-perfect forward drive and a stylish hook shot that defies his young age.

And Charlie has impressed talent spotters so much that Essex County Cricket Club are already looking at him. T

his week bat maker PiriPiri Cricket signed him up to promote their products.

Little Charlie got cricket equipment in exchange for showing off his talents in a video posted on the firm's website.
