In English cricket, his first hundred was in a List A match against Surrey in the 2011 edition of Clydesdale Bank 40, where he struck 122 of 113 deliveries. He eventually finished as the leading run-getter for Hampshire in that edition, compiling 340 runs in 11 matches while averaging 56.66 and striking in excess of 90. The all-rounder’s heroics led to him being a part of the First Class team for the Hampshire, and he didn’t fail to impress in his debut game against the Lancashire, where he struck a gritty 71 in the second innings. However, more than the List A and First Class, Howell has garnered a reputation as a T20 specialist, with a forte at bowling slower deliveries for which he holds 50 variations.

Howell was the highest wicket taker for Gloucestershire in the 2016 edition of the Natwest T20 Blast, as he picked 24 scalps at an average of 16.04. In the inaugural edition of The Hundred in 2021, Howell was a part of the Birmingham Phoenix, and yet again, the right-armer impressed throughout the tournament by aggregating 11 wickets at an economy of 7.20 and an average of 18.54.

Howell had a good run in the BPL 2022 as well, where he played for the Chattogram Challengers and amassed 207 runs in 12 innings while striking in excess of 150, plus he picked 4 wickets at an economy of 7.90. Fortunately for the all-rounder, his terrific run in the Bangladesh T20s coincided with the dates of the IPL 2022 auction, wherein he was handed his first contract in the cash-rich tournament by Lucknow Super Giants.
