Nathan Buck is a fast bowler who came through the Academy system at Leicestershire CCC. He received his county cap during the first game of the 2011 season after representing England Lions earlier in the year.

Although the last three seasons have been injury-hit, Buck has more than 100 first-class wickets to his name and moves the ball around at decent pace. Buck took a maiden LV=CC five-wicket haul against Gloucestershire at Bristol in 2011 and was subsequently selected to be part of the ECB Performance Programme that runs throughout the winter.

Buck had a tremendous first full year on the Leicestershire staff in 2010 as he took 49 Championship wickets. The bowler formed a natural new-ball partnership with Matthew Hoggard and also played plenty of List A and t20 games. He took ten wickets in the t20 competition, including a fine spell of 3-20 during an important win at Headingley.

The bowler made his breakthrough in the summer of 2009 after he had finished studying. In that short burst of action, Buck claimed the wickets Mark Ramprakash and VVS Laxman as his maiden Championship and List A wickets respectively.

Buck was England under 19s’ most successful paceman on the South Africa tour in early 2009. He took nine wickets at 24.22 despite being the youngest bowler on show, played in Bangladesh later that year and went to the World Cup in New Zealand in 2010.
