A dangerous striker of the cricket ball, Ross Whiteley, has somewhat become a white-ball specialist, with his big-hitting ability drawing the attention of several franchises across the world. The left-handed batsman has been part of the Pakistan Super League with Multan Sultans and the Bangladesh Premier League with Sylhet Sixers. Originally from Derbyshire where he became a regular in 2011, he fell out with the team management in 2013 - differing from their perspective about his plans for the future. Whiteley then moved on to Worcestershire, securing a three-year contract. The left-handed batsman enjoyed a prolific time in the Twenty20 version of the game, his 38-ball unbeaten 84 against former team, Derbyshire, reminding everyone of his abilities. Another fine Natwest T20 campaign in 2015 (which included a 35-ball 91 against Yorkshire) catapulted him into the Lions squad for a Twenty20 series against Pakistan A.
