Jimmy Ormond is a strong, tall, well-built fast-medium with an ability to swing the ball He rose through the ranks at Leicestershire, playing for England at Under-19 level and then for the A team in 1997-98. Steady performances culminated in him making his Test debut at The Oval in 2001 where he took one wicket. He was picked for the one-day tour of Zimbabwe in 2001-02 but withdrew because of injury, but he did take part in the tours to India and new Zealand later that winter, as well as making the switch to Surrey, who at the time were cherry-picking many of the country's leading players. But after making his second Test appearance in India, he got on the wrong side of coach Duncan Fletcher when he rejoined the squad in New Zealand in less than perfect shape, a situation not helped by an unflattering photograph on him without a shirt on taken during a net session. That effectively ended his Test career, and while he continued to perform well for Surrey, it was as part of a team in decline.
