    [VIDEOS] Babar Azam for Somerset in T20 Blast and County Championship 2019 - Performance Watch

    Somerset County Cricket Club are delighted to be able to announce that the ICC’s IT20 number one ranked batsman Babar Azam will be joining the Club for this year’s Vitality Blast, subject to the Club obtaining the appropriate visa/NOC clearance.

    The 24-year-old Pakistan batsman made his International T20 debut against England in 2016. Since then he has gone on to feature in 29 matches in the format, scoring over 1180 runs at an average of 53.72 with a best of 97 not out and a strike rate of 127.78.

    Babar Azam will be available for all 14 Vitality Blast group matches plus the quarter-final. His availability for Finals Day would be dependent on his international commitments with Pakistan.

    Somerset CCC Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry said: “To be able to sign a player of the calibre of Babar Azam is tremendously exciting. He is a proven performer at the very highest level and that is highlighted by the fact that he is the top rated international T20 batsman in the world.

    “Obviously, everyone wants to sign a world class performer, but we feel that continuity of selection is equally important. For us it is about securing the services of someone as talented as Babar Azam for more than just a handful of fixtures.”

    After agreeing to join Somerset, Babar Azam said: “I am looking forward to the new challenge that playing T20 cricket in England will bring. I have heard good things about Somerset from Azhar Ali and I want to play a part in the Club winning matches. I know that Somerset get good support and I hope that I can give them something to cheer about this year.”

    As Pakistani players are now allowed only 2 overseas T20 leagues (If the rule is still intact) looks like Babar has used it wisely with Vitality Blast and European T20 league.

    This is bit confusing, Blast will clash with Euro T20 Slam and Babar is Marquee player over there.

    Not sure how he can play all group games and QF when he's already signed up for Euro Slam?

    Good signing, Somerset will be very pleased.

    With Essex and Somerset being in the same group, and Babar and Amir opening the batting and bowling for their respective teams, there is high chance they will face each other in a thrilling contest.

    Looks like he'll miss the first group game of the Euro T20 Slam, miss another game if Somerset get to the quarter finals and miss the T20 Slam knockouts (if his team make it) if Somerset get to finals day.

    He will ultimately play both, but might miss a large chunk of games in the Euro Slam, quarter finals go upto 7th of September with finals day on 21st September.

    Anyways,looks like a packed cricket season ahead for Babar ahead, with very little rest in between.

    Sky Sports cricket will show live coverage of Kent Spitfires v Somerset on Saturday.

    Somerset need to use him as an opener so he can showcase his array of skills from the start.

    If the match is not on sky sports, the host county will live stream the match on their website. Glamorgan had a livestream up.

    South West, they have a proper village accent.

    The South Coast is more Southampton/Bournemouth area. I studied in Southampton and their accents aren't much different to what you find in the South East, closely resembling the London cockney.

    Looking forward to it!


    Top knock today, unlucky not to get to 3 figures.

    I would like him to play county cricket(4 day), he will learn so much.
