Profile

Tom Banton made his Somerset Championship debut in 2018, a summer in which he also skippered England Under-19s. He is an imposing presence at the crease who revels in attacking from the off. He grew up in the Warwickshire academy before heading down south to join Somerset and making his 1st XI debut in a T20 tie against Middlesex as a wicketkeeper in 2017, impressing with a very smart leg-side stumping of Dawid Malan. He toured India in 2016-17 with the U19s and put together a match-winning 74* in the following winter's tour of South Africa.
