Profile

That 2018 was Matt Critchley's breakthrough year was painfully evident for the battle-hardened Yorkshire seamer after he had conceded 19 runs to Critchley in the final over to lose a T20 Blast match at Chesterfield. "Hats off to that lad at the end, great striking," praised Bresnan, only to find that Derbyshire fans now expected him to reference the name of a player who had become the pride of the county.
