Profile

An Australian-born skiddy seam bowler and hard-hitting lower-order batsmen, Steven Crook started his first-class career at Lancashire but had limited chances to show his worth. After a loan move to Northamptonshire at the end of the 2005 season, he made a permanent switch for 2006 where he earned greater chances in the one-day arena. Injury ravaged much of his time at Northants but he found other outlets to express himself as a lead singer of the band Juliet the Sun. The Sun newspaper even credited their track, Time For Heroes, as a reason that England won the Ashes.
