Will Somerville Interview

July 15, 2020

Will Somerville is one of the nicest blokes in cricket, a trained accountant who went from needing to take annual leave to play cricket to wearing the Baggy Blue for NSW and representing his country in Test Cricket. 

In this edition of the Cricket Library Podcast the off spinner shares insights into the origins of his passion for the game, making his first class debut for Otago & moving to Australia. Will gives us a better understanding of his drive to maintain his training and playing commitments while working as an accountant. We hear just how much it meant to Will to be upgraded to a full contract with NSW and eventually making the move back to NZ and becoming a Test cricketer. 

Of course we will find out who the three selections are for who Will would most like to join him in the nets. He choses an interesting mix from three different sports for what would be a very enjoyable net.
