James 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 Westcountry but gained infamy by being hit for 38 in one over by Scott Styris during a live televised Twenty20 quarter-final at Hove.
He has great potential and Gloucestershire will hope he can become their attack leader but he has only 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 gets on the park, he is a tall lively seamer who can 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.
Brendon McCullum has started the 2015 IPL in fine style, but his numbers in the previous seven seasons aren't consistent with his obvious attacking skills and talent
The boy from Burnley with magic in his wrist has surpassed all before him - with luck we will be able to enjoy his skill and application for a few more years yet
Do fast bowlers need verbal fisticuffs to generate aggression? Does sending a nightwatchman in always make sense? Is surpassing 100mph even possible?
Azhar Ali looks ahead to his new role as Pakistan's ODI captain, talks about his leadership style and adjusting to the format
Plays of the day from the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians
His current game is extremely premeditated, so as to delay taking risks, and it robs the innings of all natural flow
Azhar Ali's early steps in captaincy will be analysed extensively but he needs time to step out of the large shadows of Misbah-ul-Haq and Shahid Afridi
