Profile

Ollie Rayner, a tall and self-effacing offspinner, has slowly gained himself a solid reputation as a key performer in Middlesex's ranks. He played a central role in Middlesex's 2016 title success, taking 51 wickets at 23.57 despite having to contend with benign Lord's pitches for much of the summer.
