Born in South Africa to a German father, Craig Meschede attended King's School in Taunton and graduated through the Somerset academy, developing as a useful bowling allrounder and now earning regular selection for the Somerset first XI.
2013 was his breakthrough season with 10 first-class matches and 26 wickets at 28.38. He also performed very well in one-day cricket with 22 scalps at 21.72 in the Yorkshire Bank 40 and 10 wickets at 25.10 in T20.
He made his first appearance for Somerset second XI in 2009 and two years later, made his first team bow against Sussex at Hove.
