Profile

Ian Harvey possesses one of the wickedest slower balls in the business, a gift that has earned him messiah-like status in English domestic ranks but gone largely unrecognised back home. In 73 one-day internationals, accumulated in ten countries across seven years, he has never hit a half-century nor taken a five-for, nor truly guaranteed himself a regular spot in pyjamas. He clubs a few runs here and nails the odd wicket there while going for around five an over, which is better than it sounds given that he bowls always in the rush hour. In England, however, Harvey's handy yorker, shock bumper, skidding bounce and flotilla of slower variations have earned him nationwide esteem. He has been instrumental in turning perennial stragglers Gloucestershire, who have never won a County Championship, into the nation's one-day wonders. Five years of hard winter yakka culminated in him being named one of Wisden's Five Cricketers of the Year in 2004. David Foot, seldom prone to hyperbole, concluded: "Few imports have ever been so influential." Almost as an aside, Harvey is a heavy-hitting lower-order bat who in 2003 became the first centurion in England's revolutionary Twenty20 Cup.
