Tom Bailey, a tall seamer from Preston, has barely played for Lancashire yet has already experienced two relegation seasons. He made his Championship debut in a dead rubber against Surrey at the end of the 2012 season. Then he endured another taste of relegation in 2014 after taking six wickets in three matches against Durham, Yorkshire and Middlesex, but on the final day of the season against Middlesex at Old Trafford being part of a Lancashire side relegated for the second time in three seasons.
That disappointment did not last long. Lancashire were promoted in 2015 and Bailey could point to his first five-for, figures of 5 for 12 achieved at Grace Road as Lancashire routed Leicestershire for 78 at Grace Road.
Bailey first played for Lancashire at Under 19s level. He joined Lancashire's academy in 2011.
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
