Craig Overton haul of wickets

Craig Overton 05-12 C stunned the crowd at Durham recently with a 5 wicket haul for Somerset.

Craig, who has now fully recovered from the stress fracture of his back which set him back last season, was in fine form, dominating the bowling from the outset. Identical and almost impossible to tell apart on the field, Craig and his twin brother, Jamie present differing propositions for the club.

Jamie is the strike man, bowling as fast as he can in short spells.

Craig, however, adopts an Andrew Flintoff approach of hammering the ball in just short of a length, time and again, in longer spells. Somerset and England will hope it is not a case of either/or with the Overtons, but that they begin to prosper in unison.
