Tom to miss ICC Under 19 World Cup
Tom Lammonby will now miss the ICC Under 19 World Cup due to injury.
The 17-year-old left-handed batsman, who also bowls left-arm medium pace, suffered an injury to his left hand during practice and has now been ruled out of the tournament.
After hearing the news Somerset Director of Cricket Andy Hurry said: “Everyone at the Club is devastated for Tom. He has really impressed for his country at this level over the last 12 months and I have no doubt that he would have played a major part in England winning matches at this tournament.
“Obviously he is extremely disappointed, but he is a strong character and he will bounce back. We will assess the injury when he returns to the Cooper Associates County Ground and hopefully he will be back out in the middle sooner rather than later.”
Tom has been in good form recently and excelled with the bat in the recent Tri-Series against South Africa and Namibia. He was also named as England’s Man of the Series against India last summer.
Somerset still have two representatives in the England squad at the ICC U19 World Cup, Tom Banton and Fin Trenouth. England begin their campaign against Namibia on January 15th.
Tom will be replaced in the squad by Euan Woods.Back to News
