TEAMS

A combative allrounder, Jordan Thompson flourished during the Bob Willis Trophy in 2020, scoring 234 runs and taking 15 wickets in Yorkshire's five North Group matches. He fell two runs short of a maiden hundred, against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge, and finished the season by claiming his first five-wicket haul - having hit 62 in the first innings - to help secure victory over Leicestershire at Headingley.

Thompson had made his debut for Yorkshire's 2nd XI in 2013, aged 16, but did not get a chance in the first team until 2018, when he made nine appearances in the T20 Blast. The following summer, he scored 736 runs and took 33 wickets for the seconds, leading to a Championship bow against Surrey at Guildford, where he dismissed England Test batsmen Mark Stoneman and Scott Borthwick for his first first-class wickets. At the start of that season's Blast campaign, he crunched a 26-ball fifty against Derbyshire.

Having being diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic as a teenager, Thompson manages the condition alongside trying to raise awareness for Diabetes UK.
