The archetypal English seamer, Kirby has thrived throughout his county career without ever gaining international recognition. The fiery paceman showed his character from an early age when, after being released by Leicestershire without playing a game, he took seven wickets on his Yorkshire debut. Kirby has never shied away from a contest, while his often bizarre sledges - he once told Mike Atherton he had seen better players in his fridge - earmark him as one of the game’s characters.
