Profile

Tom Banton is a dynamic, new-age, young English wicket-keeper batsman who burst onto the scene in 2017 for Somerset. His big hitting, explosive batting and quick glovework behind the stumps have seen him being touted as a successor for Jos Buttler. A product of the Warwickshire's system, Banton also played for the Under-19s and his potential was obvious to those who saw him and he was handed a contract at Somerset for the 2017/18 season.


The next season he debuted in other formats and started to explode in white-ball cricket especially the shortest format. He showed his maturity and was one of the standout performers in the 2019 T20 Blast campaign. This topped with his exploits in BBL and other Leagues saw him get a national call-up against New Zealand in the T20I series. This was followed by ODI debut against South Africa. Seeing his potential, Kolkata bought him for INR 1 crore for the 13th season of the Indian T20 League. With age on his side, Banton has all the tools to replace Bairstow and Buttler in the future and become a star.
