Profile

Although originally playing club cricket as a wicketkeeper, Josh Poysden was inspired to take-up leg-spin by watching Mushtaq Ahmed at Sussex. He soon impressed with his calm temperament and impressive control but saw his progress halted at his native Sussex - where he had represented the academy and second team - by the presence of Will Beer at the club. While studying at Anglia Ruskin University, however, he represented Cambridge MCCU - he made his first-class debut in 2011 - and impressed sufficiently to win selection for the Unicorns. Although not a big turner of the ball, his control helped him win selection for the Unicorns team before earning a trial at Warwickshire in 2014. Taking the opportunity offered by injury to other spinners at the club and a series of dry pitches, Poysden soon made himself a valuable member of the limited-overs squad and was offered a one-year deal for 2015. He played the majority of the club's T20 Blast games in 2015 and, while his Championship debut was chastening - he took 1-165 on a flat wicket that saw only 12 wickets fall in a four-day game - his T20 economy rate (he conceded 7.09 an over) was enough to win him a new two-year deal towards the end of the season. Poysden also claimed a catch to dismiss Mitchell Starc off the bowling of Moeen Ali was fielding as a substitute during the third Investec Ashes Test at Edgbaston in 2015 and, while playing Grade cricket in Sydney with Gordon CC, took the wicket of Michael Clarke on his comeback from injury ahead of the World Cup. He returned to Sydney in 2015-16 to represent Northern District CC, the same club as Brad Haddin and Nathan Lyon. George Dobell
