Profile

Paul McMahon is a product of the Nottinghamshire Academy. He is an off-spinner of great potential, and is regarded as one of the brightest young spin bowling prospects in the country. He uses his height and a classical action to obtain good loop and genuine spin, allied to impressive control. He played for England Under-19s in the 2002 World Cup in New Zealand and was generally regarded as England's best bowler in an otherwise disappointing campaign.
