PROFILE

Matt Dunn is a right-arm pace bowler who has played Under-19 cricket for England. A product of Surrey's youth system, he made his county debut as a 19-year-old in 2011, starring with 5 for 56 to help Surrey to a seven-wicket win against Derbyshire. But he had to wait another three years for a decent run in the side. Dunn has the precious ability to harass batsman on docile wickets: he has pace, a strong muscular action, a dangerous bouncer and a devastating yorker. He was Surrey's leading first-class wicket-taker in 2014, with 47, though his performances waned as the season went on. While he is a tremendous prospect, Dunn is hampered by a lack of accuracy: he leaked 3.87 runs an over in first-class cricket in 2014.

Dunn was born in Egham in Surrey, but his father was born in Ireland, opening up the possibility of playing for them. It is something that Ireland are keen to pursue, but Dunn insists that his ultimate ambition was to play for England.
