Harry Gurney made his first-class debut for Leicestershire in 2007 as a left-arm fast bowler after having tasted relative success in Leicestershire’s second team. Before breaking through into first-class cricket, Gurney played club cricket for Loughborough Town CC and therefore the Leeds/Bradford UCCE. He was impressive playing for Leeds/Bradford university when he dismissed Michael Vaughan and Jacques Rudolph at the beginning of the season.
Gurney proved himself as an useful T20 specialist when he took 23 wickets for Leicestershire in their title winning campaign.
At the top of the 2011 season, Gurney joined Nottinghamshire and picked up 21 wickets in 10 championship appearances. He doubled the amount of scalps in 2013 and established himself as a promising domestic performer.
His antics at the first-class level were finally noticed when he was named in England’s limited-overs squad to tour West Indies . He was also named as a traveling reserve for the planet T20 in Bangladesh. Equipped with good pace and variety, Gurney is a longtime bowler within the county circuit. His penchant for taking top-order wickets and bowling well within the death overs, has earned him a reputation of being a seriously competent left-arm seamer.
