James Fuller played for five seasons for Gloucestershire, taking 89 wickets at an average of 35 in his 35 first-class appearances, before Middlesex's director of cricket, Angust Fraser, enticed him to Lord's because of his white-ball attributes. If Fraser needed last-minute confirmation of his view, a strong display in Gloucestershire's Royal London Cup final defeat of Surrey, on the Lord's ground about to become his home, provided it.
His debut season in 2016 was most notable for some strong T20 displays, although he played only three Championship matches in Middlesex's title-winning year. He had some eye-catching moments, however: five wickets on debut in a win against Hampshire and 92 in a remarkable ninth-wicket stand of 162 with James Harris as Middlesex stole a two-wicket win against Somerset at Taunton that proved to be one of the most decisive twists of the summer.
Fuller is a talented young bowler with genuine pace who began his career with Otago and signed a three-year deal with Gloucestershire in August 2010 as a British passport holder. He has impressed during his time in the West Country but gained infamy by being hit for 38 in one over by Scott Styris during a live televised Twenty20 quarter-final at Hove.
Gloucestershire's hopes that he would become their attack leader never materialised as he played in fits and starts because of a poor record with injuries. At the start of the 2013 season he broke a finger; that winter he impressed as an overseas player for Auckland before suffering a hip problem; then back at Gloucestershire his season was over as early as May by a foot injury that eventually required surgery.
When he got on the park, he was a tall lively seamer who could move the ball. He took a hat-trick across two overs against Worcestershire at Cheltenham in July 2013 and signed a two-year contract extension at the end of the season before Middlesex came calling.
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
