Chris Rogers has left Australia and the trials of international cricket behind and decided to play for England County side Somerset.
Chris Rogers retired from international Cricket and the Australian team following the loss of the last Ashes series to England. The thirty eight year old professional will do wonders for the batting order at Somerset. Speaking of the opportunity that has come his way he said:
“I’m really pleased to be joining a club of the stature of Somerset, I have always enjoyed playing cricket in England. There have been quite a few Australian players who have done really well down at Taunton and hopefully I can add my name to that list.”
Ryan Davies will also join Somerset as he has signed a three year deal with the team, leaving behind his position in Kent. The young hopeful could go from strength to strength with the right guidance. He believes that the opportunity to play for Somerset was one that he would have been foolish to pass up:
“I am really excited to be signing for Somerset and would like to thank everyone at Kent for their help and support over the years, there are some really good players in the Somerset squad and I am looking forward to working with all of them. This is an exciting time for me as I take my career to the next stage with Somerset.”
Somerset director of cricket, Matt Maynard, believes both of the new recruits will do wonders for the club and is excited for the 2016 season:
“These are great signings for the club, Chris Rogers is an outstanding batsman with an excellent attitude towards the game. He will score runs on the field and will have a positive impact off it as well. He is an excellent professional and our young players will learn a lot from him. Ryan Davies is a great young talent. He has already represented England at age-group level and I am excited about how we can help him develop in to the cricketer that we all think he can become.”
