Six-foot-seven tall and built like the farmer's boy he is, fast-bowler Boyd is a fearsome prospect - physically intimidating, technically savvy and devastating on his day.
Boyd has played international cricket for Ireland and England and has been involved in squads for the ICC Cricket World Cup, ICC World Twenty20 and The Ashes. At the end of 2015 season he returned to the Ireland set-up of which he remains an integral part.
In his last season at Edgbaston, Boyd is aiming to play as much cricket as possible across all formats and has the ability to be unplayable for opposition on his day. A true match-winner.
