Tom Kohler-Cadmore is a destructive hitter, particularly down the ground, particularly in Twenty20 cricket. Those talents were enough for Yorkshire to tempt him to leave Worcestershire in 2017, a move which so infuriated his director of cricket, Steve Rhodes, that he was whistled out of the dressing room in mid-season with barely time for his father - the New Road dressing room attendant - to say goodbye.
An outstanding schoolboy player, Kohler-Cadmore won a cricket scholarship to Malvern College and amassed 1,409 runs at an average in excess of 100 in his final year. He subsequently won the 2014 Young Wisden Schools Cricketer of the Year.
Brought up through Yorkshire's age-group teams - his name is inherited from his mother's German origins - where he broke run-scoring records previously held by Michael Vaughan, he graduated to the Worcestershire side as a teenager. While progress was initially uncertain - he failed to reached 20 in his first eight first-class innings - he gradually began to find his feet. A century in a non-first-class game against Cambridge MCCU was followed by successive half-centuries against Leicestershire and Glamorgan before an innings of 99 against Leicestershire in July 2014 was ended when Dan Redfern bowled him.
The maiden first-class century finally came in the final game of the 2015 season, against Middlesex at New Road as he added 229 with Tom Fell. Two more first-class hundreds followed in 2016, including a career-best 169 against Gloucestershire, although he was overshadowed by an extraordinary tail-end hundred by Jack Shantry. Proof of his dangerous T20 talents came when he scored the fastest hundred in English cricket in 2016 when he reached 100 off 43 balls in the opening night NatWest T20 Blast win over Durham at New Road, going on to post 127 off 54 - then Worcestershire's highest individual score in that format.
His career at Worcestershire ended abruptly in May 2017 after he told the club he would not be signing a new contract. Having declined large offers from several clubs - Warwickshire among them - he decided to return to Yorkshire for the 2018 season, having just struck a century off them in a Royal London Cup tie at New Road. Rhodes, his coach, who was proud of a young side awash with homegrown talent, reacted furiously and, having informed Kohler-Cadmore he wouldn't be picked again, his move to Yorkshire was brought forward. He made his first team debut for them in July.
