James Fuller is a right-arm fast bowler and right-handed batsman who arrived at Hampshire from Middlesex after the conclusion of the 2018 season.
The Cape Town born all-rounder started his professional cricketing career in Otago, New Zealand, before moving to England to play for Gloucestershire for five seasons and returning to Auckland, New Zealand, as an overseas player in between.
In 2016, James began catching the eye of the Middlesex fans through his strong T20 displays at the London-based county, as well as stating his claim with influential performances in the County Championship, contributing in Middlesex’s definitive wins over Hampshire and Somerset which landed them the title that summer.
Fuller featured throughout all three formats during his first full season in 2019, scoring nearly 400 runs and taking a strong amount of wickets, cementing himself in the middle order for the majority of the season.
Lower order runs were his strength as a majestic 55* at Lord's in the Royal London One-Day Cup final was the highlight.
