Profile

Tom Abell had a demanding, and sometimes traumatic, blooding as Somerset's Championship captain when he was awarded the role for the 2017 season. He was 23 when the season began, putting him among the youngest county captains, such as Kim Barnett and Rory Hamilton-Brown, who were both 22 when they took charge of Derbyshire and Surrey respectively, but by the end of the season must have felt twice that age.
