Reece Topley

A promising left-arm seamer, Topley broke into Essex's LV= County Championship side in 2011 and took little time in showcasing his talent.

Topley, who was once struck on the head in the nets by a Kevin Pietersen drive, took 14 wickets in his first four championship matches, including two five-wicket hauls, and worked in tandem with the economical David Masters when opening the bowling for Essex.

The England Under-19 is a hostile bowler who uses his height of 6ft 7in to extract an impressive amount of bounce.
