County Stats (19/20 season)
Tom Kohler-Cadmore is one of English Cricket’s most exciting young batsmen, recently returning performances of note against red and white balls.
TKC, or Pepsi as some know him, is yet to make a senior appearance for his country, though has represented the Lions at home and abroad.
A Kent-born 26-year-old, he played under 15s cricket for Yorkshire given his parents live in Hornsea near Hull.
He was offered a place on Yorkshire’s Academy, but Worcestershire did the same along with a place at Malvern College, something he accepted.
Thankfully, he returned ‘home’ midway through 2017 on loan before a permanent deal began the following summer.
Prior to 2020, he signed a three-year contract extension, committing him to Yorkshire until the end of 2023, with director of cricket Martyn Moxon saying: “Tom’s one of the players we want to build our team around.”
A player with captaincy ambitions, he led the Vikings during the 2019 Vitality Blast.
He was Yorkshire’s leading run-scorer across all formats that summer with 1,729, including three hundreds.
A powerful opener against the white ball, he has transitioned from the middle order against the red ball to open alongside Adam Lyth, something he did for the whole of the Bob Willis Trophy in 2020.
Tom’s surname is a mixture of his father Mick and his mother’s German origins. Mick is currently Yorkshire’s dressing room attendant.
He scored the fastest hundred in English Cricket in 2016 when he reached 100 off 43 balls in Worcestershire’s opening night T20 Blast win over Durham. He went on to make 127, which remains a career best.
His first-class best 176 came for Yorkshire against Leeds/Bradford MCCU at the start of 2019 having hit a one-day best 164 against Durham in 2018.
His county debut came in a one-day game for Worcester in 2013 before making his bow in the other formats the following season. He has since scored 13 centuries across all formats.
In early 2020, he lit up the Abu Dhabi T10 League with 206 runs in six innings for Pune Devils – his second taste of that competition.
That form earned him a Pakistan Super League T20 contract with Peshawar Zalmi immediately prior to the 2021 English summer, when he will also play in the Hundred for the Emerald Headingley based Northern Superchargers.
