Profile

Blessed with genuine pace, Mark Footitt has taken a while to hone his talent but is gradually becoming recognised as one of the leading bowlers in county cricket. 2014 was a breakthrough season for him with 84 first-class wickets at 19.19. His 82 wickets in the Championship - the highest in Division Two - represented the best return by a Derbyshire bowler since the England offspinner Geoff Miller in 1984. Just as strikingly, his 106 dismissals in all competitions were the most by a Derbyshire bowler since 1965. With left-arm quicks a rare commodity, a call-up to the England Performance Programme soon followed and, in 2015, he also netted with the full England squad ahead of the Ashes series without quite managing to claim an international debut.
