Cuckfield sign BBL star Jake Weatherald - 12/12/18

Jake Weatherald-2

Cuckfield have signed explosive SA Redbacks and Adelaide Strikers opener Jake Weatherald for their 2019 Sussex League campaign.

Weatherald (24) is one of the hottest batting prospects in Australia whose set domestic cricket alight since his first-class debut for South Australia in February 2016.

He has scored a deluge of runs in all formats - his highlight - a match-winning century (70-ball 115) in the Big Bash Final in February 2018. 

The explosive left-handed opening batsman has been one of the most dominant batsmen, in all formats, in Australia since his debut 2015/16 season. In first-class cricket, he boasts tallies of 270 runs at 38.57 (2015/16), 634 runs at 31.70 (2016/17), 765 runs at 38.25 (2017/18).

However, it’s perhaps in white ball cricket where he’s been most prolific with 284 runs at 47.33 (2016/17), 337 runs at 42.12 (2017/18) and 261 runs at 52.20 (2018/19) in Australia’s One-Day Cup.

He has already notched up 8 centuries across the three formats and has a List A average in the high-40s (4x100s, 3x50s).

Weatherald, who has taken “the greatest catch of all time” (according to Michael Vaughn during BBL07), is set to join Cuckfield for their Sussex Cricket League campaign in 2019. 

He will follow in the footsteps of Sam Whiteman, Jeet Raval, Keshav Maharaj, SJ Erwee, Will Somerville and Jordan Silk, to name but a few of Cuckfield’s signings over the years through CricX.

Commenting on the signing, Cuckfield 1st XI Captain Josh Hayward was understandably delighted. “Jake’s record clearly speaks for itself, he will be one of the best players in the league and I’m really stoked.”
