Right-Handed Batsman, Right-Arm Fast-Medium Bowler24
All rounder Lewis, who hails from Plympton in Devon, was awarded a contract by Somerset after graduating through the Somerset Academy in 2010.
In 2009 Lewis made an impression with both bat and ball playing for England Under 19s in their one-day series against Sri Lanka which included taking a hat-trick. He made his Somerset debut in the 50 over game against Pakistan in September 2010 in which he enjoyed bowling figures of 4 for 49.
He made his Championship debut against Worcestershire at Taunton in 2011. His highest score in the Championship is 48 not out against Warwickshire at Edgbaston in 2011. He had a rather disappointing season in 2012 but recorded his highest List A and T20 scores and also took 4 wickets in the T20 quarter final against Essex at Taunton.
In 2013 Lewis forced his way into the Championship team towards the end of the season and in 2014 took 45 First Class wickets with a best of 6 for 47 (11 for 122 in the match) against Northamptonshire at Northampton.
He also scored his maiden List A century of 105 not out, sharing an unbroken sixth wickets partnership of 215 with James Hildreth in the thrilling victory over Durham at Taunton.
In 2015 Lewis bowled 341 overs in the Championship, more than any other Somerset bowler, and took 38 wickets at 34.58, however he will have been disappointed overall with his batting performances.
Lewis was called up for the England ODI squad during 2015, but didn’t play and was named in the Lions side to play in a T20 series during the winter, but had to withdraw through injury.
In 2016 Lewis’ batting performances improved and he made several valuable contributions. In 12 first class matches he scored 329 runs at an average of 27.42, that included a new career best of 73 not out. He also took 29 wickets at 30.83 with a best of 4 for 58.
Lewis was Somerset’s leading wicket-taker in the Royal London One Day Cup last summer claiming 17 wickets at 22.12 in the nine matches he played.
