A product of the Gloucestershire academy, Liam Norwell burst onto the scene in April 2011 with 6 for 46 against Derbyshire. A stress fracture of the back quickly halted the start to his career and his workload has been carefully managed since. But he has been drip-fed into the Gloucestershire first XI and his strong, thick-set frame has demonstrated enough potential to earn an extended contract to 2017.
After his remarkable debut, Norwell played two more games before injury prevented his return until 2012; that season he took an admirable 22 wickets at 28.72. The following year he again suffered with injuries and his season was limited to just seven appearances for the first XI. But he was still awarded a two-year contract extension.
2014 saw Norwell's finest moment in a Gloucestershire shirt, surprisingly with the bat. He made 78 against Worcestershire at Cheltenham in July 2014 - the highest score by a No. 11 for the county - and shared a stand of 137 with Craig Miles for the 10th wicket - also a county record. Unfortunately the feats only delayed a heavy defeat.

After the tragedy of Phillip Hughes' death, this match showed that cricket and life will continue to go on. This time Test cricket dug in and got through to tea.
Virat Kohli's innings on the final day transcended the conditions, the bowlers and his batting partners, and when it was all in vain, he displayed remarkable grace in defeat

Turning your back on a system that the whole cricketing world wants a discussion on, refusing to discuss it because it is not 100%, is not good enough
The failed gamble of handing Karn Sharma a Test debut despite him having a moderate first-class record means India have to rethink who their spinner will be
