Eddie Byrom, Zimbabwean born with an Irish passport, made his Championship debut for Somerset in their first-ever floodlit first-class match, against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl in 2017.
A dependable left-handed opener of great potential, he then built on the experience of eight Championship matches with an attritional maiden first-class hundred in Harare on his debut for Rising Stars (a collection or young talent from different franchises) against Matabeleland Tuskers in the Logan Cup.
Byrom, the son of a former Zimbabwean sports journalist, had moved to Kings College in taunton two years earlier and was signed by Somerset on a scholarship contract. Before his move, he attended St John's College and played regularly for Zimbabwe's age group teams between 2011 and 2015.
