Profile

Darren Thomas hit the headlines on his county debut in 1992 when he took 5 for 80 gainst Derbyshire at Chesterfield aged 17 years and 212 days. The young Llanelli pace bowler subsequently won a place in the Young England side, and he also started to show rice promise with the bat. Even so, he was erratic at times, and prone to no balls, but there was no denying that Thomas could bowl with genuine pace and hostility, as testified by a return of 6-20 in the Benson and Hedges Cup match with the Combined Universities at Cardiff in 1995.
