Somerset County Cricket Club have announced 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 an overseas player and he will be available for the majority of the campaign.
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.
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.
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.
