Liam Plunkett

Liam Edward Plunkett (born 6 April 1985) is an English cricketer born on 6 April 1985. He is known for his right-arm fast bowling for the England Cricket team. Plunkett’s height of 6 ft 3 in (191 cm) may be on par with many fast bowlers in the country, but his ability to bowl the occasional unplayable ball at good speed caught the eye of the selectors. He was first picked to play for England in 2005 when he was the leading wicket taker in first class cricket playing for Durham in English County Cricket. His dip in form later saw him move to Yorkshire, where he rediscovered himself under Jason Gillespie.

Inconsistency kept him in and out of the squad. Though he is known for his bowling, he forced an incredible tie with the bat in a match against Sri Lanka in 2016. Since the rejuvenation of England’s white ball cricket, Plunkett, with his cross-seam variations, became an integral member of their One Day side. Though his place was under the scanner after Jofra Archer’s arrival, he bowled a match defining spell in the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

In IPL, Plunkett played for Delhi Daredevils in 2018 in absence of Kagiso Rabada. He didn’t trouble the stats people much though as he played only seven matches in his IPL career.

Liam Plunkett is also a selfless individual. In 2007, he offered a Kidney to his ailing father which could have ended his cricket career.
