Profile

A powerful striker of the ball, Jim Allenby's all-round skills make him a particularly useful addition to any Twenty20 squad. He played in the 2006 domestic Twenty20 final - and towards the end of the season he gained an opening in Leicestershire's Championship team. It couldn't really have gone much better as he hit a century against Essex in the final round of matches and followed that up with a match-winning, unbeaten, half-century in the run chase. Australian by birth and educated in Perth, In 2006-07 he made his Australian domestic debut in a Twenty20 game for Western Australia, but stated his ambitions to play for England. That goal ultimately led to his departure from Grace Road, however, as in July 2009 it was confirmed he would leave Leicestershire after failing to sign a contract extension. Allenby had been shopping around for a contract that might help him fulfill his international ambitions. He eventually moved to Glamorgan, and quickly became a vital cog in their limited-overs sides while also nailing down a spot in their Championship side. He was a potent force in the Glamorgan side which reached the final of the Yorkshire Bank 40 in 2013, against Nottinghamshire, but could not prevent them falling to a third defeat in three Lord's finals.
