Andrews has been a regular for England in age group competition for several years and has starred in two so-called ‘Silver Ashes’ series wins against Australia, one of them Down Under.

Andrews, an off-spinning all-rounder, still plays regular club cricket for Deeping seconds in South Lincs Division One.
