Olly Stone - one to keep your eye on

Olly Stone - one to keep your eye on

Although the tall right-arm seamer has not featured in this Test series against the West Indies, Olly Stone is still a man to keep your eye on. Having made his Test debut in 2019 against Ireland, where he took 3/29 in the first innings, Stone is capable of bowling with some real pace. He has also appeared in 4 ODI’s for England.


Brought up in Norfolk, and making his debut for the National Counties Cricket Association side in 2011 against county cricket side Bedfordshire, Stone progressed into the Northants set up. He played for the academy, the second eleven and then made his first class debut in 2012.


Stone took the choice to move to Warwickshire in 2017 in a bid to progress his career. Now with well over 100 first-class wickets to his name at an impressive average of 24.66, and with the capacity for some useful lower order runs, he is another fine example of an NCCA graduate.
