In 2010, Steven Mullaney added his name to the small list of Nottinghamshire players to score a century on his first-class debut for the county, when he made exactly 100 not out. against Hampshire at The Rose Bowl.
It was three years before he added another century in the Championship. He was charged with solving a perennial Nottinghamshire problem - the lack of a reliable opening pair - after a short-term contract for the Australian Ed Cowan, ahead of the Ashes series, had come to an end. He responded by taking a hundred off the Surrey attack.
By the end of a dry summer, he had underlined his versatility even more, abandoning his medium pace to fill in as an offspinner because of Nottinghamshire's spin shortages.
A useful performer in all three formats of the game, Mullaney comes into his own in white ball matches. An outstanding fielder and punchy strokeplayer, his knack of bowling a sequence of tidy medium-paced overs in the middle of matches has turned many 40-over contests in Nottinghamshire's favour. In 2012 he was jointly the county's most successful bowler in Twenty20 matches, his nine wickets including a career-best 4 for 19 against Leicestershire at Grace Road in June.
By 2016, Mullaney's respect among his fellow professionals was established. Three hundreds, including a career-best 166 not out against Somerset at Trent Bridge took him past 1,000 Championship runs and identified him as a more methodical competitor than many of his colleagues as Notts rushed towards relegation. In T20 cricket, it was his medium-pace cutters that proved most adaptable.
Mullaney began his career with Lancashire and in 2005 toured India with England Under-19s. He was selected for the Under-19 World Cup in Sri Lanka in 2006 and signed a professional contract at Old Trafford in 2006. Yet he could not secure a regular place in the first team and chose to leave after four seasons.
