Somerset Sign Cameron Bancroft

Somerset County Cricket Club are delighted to announce the signing of Cameron Bancroft for 2018.

The 25-year-old Australian batsman, currently opening the batting against England in the Ashes, will be joining the County as our overseas player and he will be available, importantly, for the majority of the campaign, as Somerset Director of Cricket Andy Hurry explains: “Cameron will be available, subject to permission from Cricket Australia, for the start of the 2018 Specsavers County Championship season, all of the Royal London One-Day Cup fixtures plus the six remaining Championship matches that take place after the T20 Blast group stages. This will provide us with the continuity that we are looking for from an overseas signing.

“After a thorough process, designed to ensure that we secure the best fit for our Specsavers County Championship and Royal London One-Day Cup needs, I am delighted that we have signed Cameron. He has come very highly recommended and will fit seamlessly into our environment. This will be a key ingredient to us achieving our aspirations of winning silverware.

“Cameron has the appetite and the temperament for scoring big hundreds. He really values the price of his wicket, is mentally tough and highly driven to succeed.”

Bancroft made his international debut in this winter’s first Ashes Test, making an eye-catching 82 in Australia’s second innings. He also has an impressive record in first class cricket with a top score of 228 not out.

After making the decision to sign for Somerset, Cameron said: “I’m really excited to be joining a county with so much potential. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Somerset from Justin Langer and it’s clear that they are a team heading in the right direction. There’s a long history of Australian’s doing well at Taunton, so hopefully I can add my name to that list.”

If for nothing else but future reference.
