"I never hold back"

Of all the sights in cricket there are few more exhilarating than stumps being ripped from the turf by a lightning-fast bowler. Well, that's what Olly can do - and just how well he does it is shown by his championship figures in 2018 - 43 wickets at 12.20 apiece!

Those wickets, earned by bowling of blistering pace, earned him selection for England's winter tours of Sri Lanka and West Indies and he made an excellent impression in the ODIs in Sri Lanka before sadly a stress-fracture forced him home from the Caribbean before he had played a game there.

Norwich-born Olly will miss the start of the 2019 season with that injury - but he will be back. And the Bears fans can't wait.
