Profile

Jamie Porter, a slender bowler of lively pace with a knack for the wicket-taking ball, was a central figure in Essex's first Championship win for 25 years, as his right-arm seam (and the offspin of Simon Harmer) hounded rivals throughout the 2017 summer. Porter's 75 wickets at 16.83 runs apiece led the wicket-taking table as well as winning him many accolades, including from the Cricket Writers' Club which voted him their Championship Player of the Year.
