Andrew Gale has hailed Tom Kohler-Cadmore’s capabilities as a limited overs batsman following his scintillating one-day century against Nottinghamshire today.
The former Worcestershire batsman hammered 124 off 68 balls in the Vikings thumping win, chasing down 312 with a massive 18.1 overs to spare.
Kohler-Cadmore, 23-years-old, hit 11 fours and 10 sixes in a blitz which demonstrated just why the county snapped him up midway through last season on a long-term contract.

His innings came on the back of successive ducks in Yorkshire’s first two matches on tour in South Africa, the latest being in the 50-over win against Leeds/Bradford MCC Universities yesterday.
“I’m pleased for Tom,” said coach Gale.
“He’s worked really hard this winter and probably questioned himself these last few days. He wanted to come out and impress and unfortunately hasn’t got any runs. Then, today, he showed what he can do.
“He was very smart. He gave himself a chance at the start of the innings. As soon as he got to 40 or 50, he cashed in. When he’s in that mood, you can’t stop him.
“We saw glimpses in the T20 last season of what he can do and against us when he played for Worcester – he got a hundred. That’s the reason why we signed him. He’s explosive.
“I believe he’s one of the best white ball players in the country.”
