An experienced all-rounder and arguably one of the most under-rated players in the domestic game, Allenby has been a reliable performer for many years.
The Australian initially enjoyed success on these shores with Leicestershire, whom he helped to Twenty20 Cup glory in 2006.
An average of 37 in first-class cricket during his time at Grace Road demonstrated Allenby's ability with the bat, while his canny medium-pace bowling proved effective in all forms.
After failing to agree a contract extension, he moved on to Glamorgan towards the end of the 2009 season.
Since then, he has continued to contribute a healthy share of runs and wickets, improving his bowling and batting statistics in the process.
