Profile

Ollie Rayner is a German-born, extremely tall offspiner. He makes the best of his build with a high arm action but lacks genuine spin on the ball. After graduating from the Sussex and ECB academies Ollie Rayner signed a contract with Sussex in November 2005. Although primarily an offspinner, he became the first Sussex player since 1920 to score a century on debut when he scored 101 against the touring Sri Lankans in 2006. His main chance, though, came following the retirement of Mushtaq Ahmed in 2008 as he became the club's frontline spinner. By the end of the season he had done enough to earn a call-up to the England Performance Squad. That was, though, a high-point. His form tailed off in 2009 and his 2010 season was curtailed by the arrival of Monty Panesar at Hove. Rayner joined Middlesex on loan in 2011, prospering enough to be rewarded with a three-year deal.
