Ed Barnes was one of a number of exciting recruits for Leicestershire signed ahead of the 2021 season.
The talented right-arm seamer joined the Running Foxes having spent a large part of the condensed 2020 season on loan at Derbyshire CCC where he made his first-class and T20 debuts.
Barnes made his first-class debut at the ground he now calls home, Grace Road, where he claimed his maiden first-class wicket in the Bob Willis Trophy fixture.
From six professional appearances, two in the Bob Willis Trophy and four in the Vitality Blast, the 22-year-old has claimed six wickets.
As well as performing well against the Running Foxes with the red ball, Barnes delivered an impressive spell of T20 death bowling against Lancashire Lightning where he picked up with wickets of Dane Vilas and Josh Bohannon.
