A talented slow-bowling all-rounder who played for England Under-19s in 2010 before breaking into Surrey’s limited-overs sides in 2011. The left-armer, playing for Cambridge MCCU, notably dismissed Surrey’s Kevin Pietersen at the start of the latter season en route to figures of 5-33 and, having been man of the match on Friends Life t20 debut, went on to help the Lions win the Clydesdale Bank 40 that year. Ansari featured more regularly in all three formats in 2012, notably batting for five and a half hours on the last day of the LV= County Championship game at Edgbaston to earn a draw.
