Welcome to Somerset Babar Azam

Babar Azam has now arrived in Taunton and spent Wednesday afternoon batting in the nets at Taunton Vale ahead of Somerset’s Vitality Blast opener at Glamorgan tonight.

After his session in the nets the Pakistan batsman, who was one the outstanding performers in the ICC World Cup, said: “I’m very excited to be here in Taunton and I’m looking forward to playing for Somerset.

“I would like to say thank you very much to the Club for picking me and giving me a chance to play for the County. I am really looking forward to it.

“My World Cup has gone very well so I am hoping that my form is going to continue for Somerset. I have worked very hard and before the start of the World Cup we had a series against England, so I was feeling very confident and really ready for it.

“I like playing here in England and now I am looking forward to playing for Somerset against other counties. Somerset have already won the One-Day Cup so hopefully this year I can help them to go one step further and win the T20 as well.”

The number one ranked IT20 batsman also had a message for Somerset Members and supporters: “I am looking forward to playing in front of my home crowd at Taunton,” he said. “I would like to ask the supporters to come along and cheer Somerset on.”
