Profile

A right-hand batsman and occasional seam bowler, Michael Thornely began his career with Sussex, where he spent three years before being released at the end of the 2010 season. Playing for Unicorns in 2011, he made an unbeaten century against Somerset and 97 against Nottinghamshire in the CB40 competition, yet suffered the frustration of playing Second XI cricket for four counties -- Somerset, Nottinghamshire, Essex and Kent -- without securing a contract.
