A punt that paid off

Seam-bowler Ryan admits his surprise rise into Warwickshire’s first-team was “pretty unbelievable.”

In March 2013, he played one first-class game for his native Victoria but after that, troubled by foot injuries, the call never came again. In 2017 he decided to take a punt and try his luck in England.

“Ryan is a match winner and he has made a big impact for since he was discovered in the Birmingham League. Having him back at full fitness and raring to go will be a great asset for the team.”

He signed for Berkswell in the Birmingham League – and bowled so well that by midsummer he was making his Warwickshire debut in a championship win over Middlesex at Lord’s.

Having bowled consistently well from that point on, ‘Sid’ earned himself a contract for 2018 and soon got among the wickets again to embed himself in the squad as a man whose skills suit English conditions.

Cruelly, his entire 2019 season was lost to injury, but he is now fit again and raring to go as a key member of the seam armoury.
