Profile

The latest - and perhaps most exciting - in a succession of talented locally-developed players at Somerset, Tom Abell has the potential to enjoy a distinguished career in the game. A product of Taunton School, he was named Young Wisden Schools Cricketer of the Year for 2013 after a 2012 season in which he amassed 1,156 runs at an average of 193. He made seven hundreds in 11 innings and passed 50 every time. He also won the Cricket Society's Wetherell Award for best all-rounder in schools cricket in 2012.
