Profile

Essex's "Little Chef" enjoyed a rapid rise during the 2017 title-winning season, progressing from university cricketer to first-team debutant and then bagging two five-fors in his first four Championship appearances at the sharp end of the campaign. By the following summer, he was regularly taking the new ball alongside Jamie Porter, demonstrating excellent control and an ability to move the ball both ways while operating at a slippery, medium-fast pace.
