Liam Plunkett has been around for more than 10 years but has become a regular in England’s limited-over side since the last two years. The fast bowler has matured with age, as he gave up on his dream of being out-and-out quick bowler. Over the course, he has found his length along with variations that has brought him significant success.
In 2017, Plunkett claimed 36 one-day international wickets in the calendar year. It was the joint second best haul in the world behind only Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan who snared 45.
