Worcestershire batsman Callum Ferguson will head back to Blackfinch New Road on the back of enjoying his most prolific ever season in the Big Bash.

The 34-year-old has continued the superb form which helped the Rapids to win the Vitality Blast last summer – and whetted the appetite of Worcestershire members and supporters for 2019.

He will be returning to the County from May 1 for the majority of the forthcoming season and to play all formats of the game.

Ferguson has more than doubled his previous best tally of runs in a Big Bash tournament with 395 from 13 innings to date for Sydney Thunder.

He has been part of the competition since its inception in 2011-2012 when he played for Adelaide Strikers.

Ferguson had returns of 79 runs in six innings (2011-2012), 146 in seven (2012-2013) and 37 in three (2013-2014) before moving to Melbourne Renegades.

He scored 165 in eight knocks (2014-2015) and, after missing the entire 2015-2016 campaign with a knee injury, scored 183 in seven innings in 2016-2017.

Ferguson then switched to the Thunder and totalled 102 runs in six innings (2017-2018) before his current prolific campaign.

It has followed on from his 390 runs in 10 innings for the Rapids in 2018 at an average of nearly 50.
