County cricket team Warwickshire on Wednesday signed England batsman Ed Pollock for all the formats. The batsman will be associated with the club for a period of one year and represent them in cross formats in all the domestic tournaments.
The 25-year-old is known for his big-hitting and has previously played for Warwickshire senior and junior teams. He has so far played 34 T20 matches and scored 724 runs for the Bears ever since his debut in the competitive cricket.
He has also appeared in 17 matches for the Bears in the List A matches and accumulated 362 runs at a strike-rate of 128.36.
Pollock has only played five First-class matches ever since his debut for Durham MCCU in 2015. All of the five appearances have been while playing for Durham MCCU only. Since then, he hasn’t got enough opportunities to play in the longest format.
“Ed can be one of the most destructive batsmen in the county game on his day,” said Bears director of cricket Paul Farbrace.
“We were very keen to ensure that he remains a Bear and that he continues to provide the team with such an explosive top-order option.
“Outside his time at Edgbaston, it’s great to see a professional continue to give so much to our local club game. Ed regularly performs for Barnt Green on summer Saturdays in the Birmingham League.”
