Jack Shantry, whose older brother Adam enjoyed a career with Northants, Warwickshire and Glamorgan, possess one of the most awkward actions in the game, but it hasn't prevented him forging a successful career with Worcestershire.
Despite bowling at a relatively gentle pace, Shantry became a fixture in Worcestershire's limited-overs teams with his left-arm seamers, delivered from a high action and with excellent control, proving hard to dominate.
He justified the club's faith in him with a series of impressive performances in the Championship side, offering control in the field and, when conditions helped his swing, proving dangerous: a haul of 7-69 against Essex the most eye-catching of several fine contributions.
