This form continued into the Second Test and he was named man of the series after collecting 14 wickets at an average of 14.

He was a part of the 2014/15 and 2016/17 Sheffield Shield final winning teams scoring 80 in the first innings of the latter final. In 2017 he represented Nottinghamshire in English County Cricket hitting the winning runs in the one day cup final.
