Profile

Richard Gleeson proved himself an integral part of Northamptonshire's NatWest T20 Blast side in 2016. He missed Finals Day - their third in four years and one in which they emerged victorious - but he had done much to get them there, showing splendid economy levels, under six an over, with aggressive, full-length bowling. It was all enough to win him a berth with Rangpur Riders in the 2016 Bangladesh Premier League. Northants' straitened financial circumstances meant that Gleeson, a former Minor Counties quick with Cumberland, played for them across all formats on a match-by-match basis in 2016, but he impressed enough to win a three-year contract at the end of the season.
