Ryan Jay Sidebottom was born 15 January 1978 in Huddersfield is an English cricketer who plays international cricket for England and domestic cricket for Nottinghamshire. With his long, curly, ginger hair, standing 6' 4" and weighing 13 stone, Ryan Sidebottom is one of the most recognizable figures on the county circuit and now, after a belated second chance at international cricket, is making up for lost time at the top level. He is a primarily a left-arm fast-medium bowler. Sidebottom played his first Test match in 2001 against Pakistan, but failed to take a wicket and was dropped for six years. In 2007 he was brought back into the side following an injury to Matthew Hoggard and took four wickets in his first innings. Since then he has become a prolific bowler for England. Like his father - Arnie - who was an accomplished footballer and one-time Test player - he made his county debut for Yorkshire as a left-arm seamer in 1997, having previously impressed the scouts of Sheffield United Football Club. For much of his career it appeared Sidebottom jnr would remain a one-cap Test wonder like his father. He'd been handed his debut in 2001 against Pakistan, but after a wicketless performance was banished back to county cricket. Although he bowled tidily throughout, he failed to take a wicket and was generally considered to be out of his depth and he was quickly discarded, and seemingly forgotten after two poor ODIs against Zimbabwe that October.
