Laurie Evans was to endure the best part of another two seasons of second-team cricket – at the start of 2013 he had played over 100 second team games and scored 20 100s, but had only played eight Championship games in the six seasons since his first-class debut – he eventually broke through in 2013. He scored three first-class centuries and 950 first-class runs at an average of 50.

While he lost his place in Warwickshire’s Championship side in 2014 – some discomfort against the short ball was exploited by quick bowlers – he produced some outstanding performances in limited-overs cricket. He was man-of-the-match when Birmingham won the final of the NatWest T20 Blast for his 28-ball half-century and thrashed a 15-ball 43 against Surrey (in the Royal London One-Day Cup) and 69 from 43 balls to help Birmingham to a crucial victory over Yorkshire in the Blast.

His highest Championship score of 213, came in a draw with Sussex at Edgbaston in 2015, and his stand of 327 with Tim Ambrose, a former Sussex man, was a record sixth-wicket stand for Warwickshire. But he was largely deployed as a limited-overs batsman and it was because of those qualities that Sussex recruited him in 2017. He had a decent season in limited-overs cricket, but played only two Championship matches, so underlining that his qualities were directed towards the short formats.
