Profile

A tousle-haired legspinner from Bolton, Matt Parkinson was the most prolific white-ball wicket-taker in the country for two seasons before earning an England call-up for the 2019-20 tour of New Zealand. Unlike most modern wristspinners, Parkinson bowls slowly and tosses the ball up above the eyeline, relying on prodigious natural turn rather than pace to take his wickets.
