Harry Gurney has raised his global profile with some outstanding performances over the past two years.

The former Leicestershire player was instrumental in the Outlaws’ trophy successes in 2017, taking 13 wickets in the Royal London One-Day Cup triumph before playing a starring role in the NatWest T20 Blast campaign.

In that tournament, he was the stand-out bowler, taking 3-19 in the semi-final win over Hampshire before scything through the Birmingham order in the final, collecting figures of 4-17.

Gurney joined Notts ahead of the 2012 campaign and took a championship hat-trick against Sussex at Hove in 2013. He was also a member of the Outlaws side that triumphed in the county’s one-day cup success at Lord’s that year, taking a wicket with his first ball in the final against Glamorgan.

The left-arm fast bowler gained England recognition in 2014, making 10 appearances in One-Day Internationals and another two in the T20 format.

This past winter Gurney has enjoyed success with the Northern Warriors in the T10 Super League before winning the Big Bash with Melbourne Renegades.

Further success followed with a stint with the Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League before he tasted his first IPL action with the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Gurney will return to the Notts ranks as a white-ball only cricketer after signing a deal until the end of 2020 earlier this summer.
