Worcestershire Selects Ashton Turner For 2020 Vitality Blast

Ashton Turner, the 26-year-old Australian cricketer, has been signed by Worcestershire Rapids as one of the overseas players for its 2020 Vitality Blast campaign. Turner will be joining Hamish Rutherford, who is the other overseas player to sign with the club, and will be with the team through their entire campaign.

Speaking about Turner’s choice, the Worcestershire Cricket Steering Group Chairman, Paul Pridgeon, said: “We are very happy to sign Ashton. He is a promising, young player which fits our profile and hopefully, he will fit nicely into our set-up. He is a top-order cricketer, batting four or five at the moment in the Australian T20 side. His stats stack up. We had a glimpse of him and have done our homework – he looks a decent player. He is also a fantastic fielder which helps, and is important in T20 cricket.”

To date, Turner has played ten T20Is and three one-days for Australia, after making his Big Bash League debut in the 2013-14 season. He has had an impact with his big-hitting for his national side but had a poor run in the Indian Premier League, earlier this year. In 83 T20 games, he scored 1166 runs at a strike rate of 136.05.
