County Stats (19/20 season)
Jack Shutt debuted for Yorkshire’s first team in the pressure cooker of a Roses Vitality Blast clash at Headingley in late July 2019, and the off-spinner made an immediate impact.
A product of Barnsley, Shutt removed experienced Lightning duo Steven Croft and Liam Livingstone, although couldn’t prevent a nine-run defeat. Thankfully, there was more to come.
Shutt, now aged 24, went on to take 10 wickets in seven games, including a stunning 5-11 from four overs to inspire a come-from-behind win over Durham at Emirates Riverside in late August.
They were, and remain, the second best figures in Yorkshire’s T20 history behind Tim Bresnan’s 6-19 against Lancashire at Headingley in 2017.
In 2020, he continued his development in the Blast and also broke into Yorkshire’s four-day team, taking two wickets in three Bob Willis Trophy games against Durham, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. They were all victories.
Shutt then made his one-day debut for the county in 2021, playing five Royal London Cup matches and taking one wicket.
He first represented Yorkshire in an Academy match against a Scotland Development side in 2013, shortly after his 16th birthday. He took three wickets.
Shutt went on to represent the Under 17s and 19s and debuted for the second-team in an early 2015 four-day friendly against Kent in Canterbury when Jonny Tattersall, Andrew Hodd, Rich Pyrah, Liam Plunkett, Matthew Waite and Ben Coad were all in the team.
In 2017, he returned a man-of-the-match four-wicket display in the Second XI one-day Trophy final win over Middlesex at Headingley.
He took 4-19 from 3.3 overs, mopping up the tail as Middlesex forlornly chased a target of 279 in 38 overs. It earned him the second-team Performance of the Year award.
His cricketing journey started at home club Elsecar, and he spent time in Mumbai prior to the 2020 summer on a spin bowling camp organised by former England spinner Peter Such.
