Tom, Lewis and Marchant to appear in PSL

Tom Abell, Lewis Gregory and Marchant de Lange have all been signed up to play in the 2022 Pakistan Premier League.

The tournament runs from January 27th until February 27th, and Tom and Lewis will join Babar Azam at Karachi Kings, whilst Marchant will play for Islamabad United.

After being picked up in the draft, Lewis said: “I’ve been fortunate enough to have been involved in the competition over the last few years, and it’s a really strong and challenging tournament to be a part of. I’m really looking forward to getting back out there and showing what I can do. Hopefully I can put in some performances that help us come home with a trophy.

“It’s nice to see Tom getting picked up by Karachi as well and we’ll be back with Babar who will be the captain. There’s a couple of other English boys in the squad too. It’s a strong group and hopefully we can all contribute to a winning team.”

How beneficial is it to be playing in these global tournaments?

“It’s of massive benefit,” Lewis said. “I think we’ve seen that over the last few years. Working with world class players and coaches in different countries and different conditions can only be beneficial to those involved. It will give those involved huge confidence which will certainly benefit Somerset and hopefully we will see that this summer.”

SCCC Head Coach, Jason Kerr also believes that those involved in such tournaments will benefit from the experience.

“They are playing against and with the best players in the world in different conditions, so they are only going to grow as cricketers,” he said. “They will also gain a lot of confidence from the experience.”

“It’s a reflection of the ability in the squad that we have here that so many of our players are being afforded these opportunities throughout the winter. We are incredibly proud that we are producing so many players that are being considered for these tournaments and it reflects well on the Club.”
