Kingston Hawthorn is delighted to welcome Leicestershire Foxes opening batter Sam Evans to the club for its 2022/23 Victorian Premier Cricket campaign.

Evans is an opening batter of some pedigree currently playing professional cricket for Leicestershire County Cricket Club in England.

A graduate of the Leicestershire pathway, Evans has been a professional for his home county since 2017, and has now played 29 first-class (County Championship) games, where he has 4 centuries amongst 1,271 runs at 27.63.

Evans has become an integral member of the Foxes’ Championship side. Renowned for his resilient approach against the new ball in the longer format, Evans is also developing his white-ball game where he has featured in 2 List A fixtures to date.

A hard-working and charismatic individual, Evans’s professional approach to the game and its demands are second to none. The youngster already has a significant amount of experience at the highest level and is now looking to put that into effect down under having signed with Kingston Hawthorn for their 2022/23 Victorian Premier Cricket campaign.
