Tom Taylor, a product of the Derbyshire academy, signed his first professional contract in 2014. He made his first-class debut in Derbyshire's first victory of the Championship season, when they defeated Leicestershire in June. Although a specialist bowler, it was with the bat where he made most impact, scoring 40 during an important partnership with centurion David Wainwright to help his side to victory.
His maiden first-class wicket came in his next game against Surrey when he dismissed the South African batsman Hashim Amla. He took his first five-wicket haul - at only 19 - when he returned figures of 5 for 58 as Derbyshire beat Gloucestershire at the Cheltenham Festival. He was part of the England Performance Programme in 2015/16, but a stress fracture interrupted his development the following summer.
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
Steven Smith defied those who didn't give him a chance as a batsman. Now his team is doing the same on a tour no one thought they could compete in
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
