Lewis to captain Trent Rockets

Lewis Gregory has today been named as captain of Trent Rockets for The Hundred this summer.

Lewis made his Somerset debut against Pakistan in 2010 and has gone on to become one of the Club most consistently impressive performers.

Somerset’s Vitality Blast Captain made his England debut on the tour of New Zealand this winter before going on to lead England Lions in four matches on their unbeaten tour of Australia.

The Plymouth all-rounder has earned a reputation as a big-hitting finisher, which his T20 strike rate of 146 attests to.

Regarding this announcement Lewis said: “I can’t wait to lead this team this summer. There’s great balance in the squad, with batsmen who can hit the ball out the ground, seamers who can knock over stumps and spinners who can tie opposition up in knots.

“With Stephen Fleming at the helm and the firepower in the dressing room, I think Trent Rockets have got a great chance of challenging for the title in the first year.”
