Profile

Craig Overton showed signs of developing into an England allrounder during an excellent Somerset season in 2015 which brought runs and wickets in all formats and rather too many brushes with authority for his own good. The highlight was 43 Championship wickets at 21.70, the lowlight was three brushes with umpires which by the end of the season had brought him a two-match ban and a reputation for an unbuttoned lip that was not about to go down well in high places.
