Profile

Not many fast bowlers have bowled to a field on debut like Matty Potts. As he delivered the last over against Kent at Canterbury during the 2017 season, he was given a field with nine slips. Sadly the dream sequence was not quite perfect and he did not manage to seal victory, Kent clinging on with nine wickets down.
