Profile

Craig Overton has had an identical development to his brother Jamie, his identical twin. The pair were brought up playing for North Devon CC and Devon age-groups before joining the Somerset academy. Craig is an allrounder and initially was given more opportunities than his brother in the Somerset first XI. But stress fracture of the back destroyed his 2013 season. Nevertheless, his potential was rewarded with a place on the ECB Potential Emerging Player Programme in South Africa at the start of 2014.
