The Somerset captain would stay for a few more years with the team after inking a deal that would keep him with the team until 2022.
Tom Abell has signed a deal with the Somerset to extend his stay with the team until 2022. His contract was set to expire by the end of 2021 prior to the contract extension. The club saw them win the One-Day Cup with their captain and has decided to reward him for good.
The captain has led the team to win their One-Day title this year and has been impressive in his stay with the team. He has been an outstanding leader for the team despite his young age.
Other than Abell, Somerset regular Jack Leach has also pledged to stay with the club until the end of 2022. This will definitely boost the team’s chances of competing on next year’s County Championship.
‘I'm absolutely over the moon to have signed this extension and I couldn't be happier. Ultimately, it's about winning and the reason I've signed is because I want to win things here’, said Abell. ‘It's no secret that this is my home club and I'm very passionate about Somerset cricket and I firmly believe that with the squad we have and the people behind the scenes we can continue to win things’.
The 25-year-old made his Somerset debut in the team’s game against Warwickshire back in 2014. He was named captain prior to the 2017 season and has played 73 first-class matches for the team while scoring over 3800 runs.
