FERGUSON WHETS APPETITE OF COUNTY FANS WITH MOST PROLIFIC BIG BASH CAMPAIGN

Worcestershire batsman Callum Ferguson will head back to Blackfinch New Road on the back of enjoying his most prolific ever season in the Big Bash.

The 34-year-old has continued the superb form which helped the Rapids to win the Vitality Blast last summer – and whetted the appetite of Worcestershire members and supporters for 2019.

He will be returning to the County from May 1 for the majority of the forthcoming season and to play all formats of the game.

Ferguson has more than doubled his previous best tally of runs in a Big Bash tournament with 395 from 13 innings to date for Sydney Thunder.

He has been part of the competition since its inception in 2011-2012 when he played for Adelaide Strikers.

Ferguson had returns of 79 runs in six innings (2011-2012), 146 in seven (2012-2013) and 37 in three (2013-2014) before moving to Melbourne Renegades.

He scored 165 in eight knocks (2014-2015) and, after missing the entire 2015-2016 campaign with a knee injury, scored 183 in seven innings in 2016-2017.

Ferguson then switched to the Thunder and totalled 102 runs in six innings (2017-2018) before his current prolific campaign.

It has followed on from his 390 runs in 10 innings for the Rapids in 2018 at an average of nearly 50.
