Profile

Wholehearted, zippy and with an unnerving bouncer that zeroes in on the batsman's head, Silverwood is an excellent county seamer who falls just short of Test class. His whirling action generates real pace - England bowling coach Bob Cottam once said he was faster than Allan Donald - but he lacks the consistency to trouble the best. As a Yorkshireman, Silverwood thrived on the helpful Headingley greentops, where his natural movement away from the right-hander was exaggerated.
