“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 it’s always a joy to see the proud Norfolkian charging in on behalf of the Bears or England.

After joining from Northamptonshire, Olly translated long-held promise into achievement in 2018 when he blazed his way to 43 championship wickets at just 12.20 apiece.

“I love the club, it has so much history and I am just looking forward to an exciting next few years with the Bears.”

Bowler

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 a stress-fracture forced him home from the Caribbean before he played a game there.

His Test debut arrived in 2019, against Ireland at Lord’s in June, and he was among the wickets straight away. Sadly, injuries have since intervened again but Norwich City-loving Olly is on the way back to fitness and will hopefully be making plenty of batsmen hop around in both county and international cricket in the coming years.
