Cameron Steel Joins Hampshire On Loan 

The 25-year-old batsman joins the Hampshire on a two-month loan agreement from Durham

Hampshire Cricket are delighted to announce the signing of Cameron Steel on a loan deal from Durham.

The 25-year-old batsman joins Hampshire on a two-month agreement, coming in as injury cover and providing depth to the squad during the LV= Insurance County Championship schedule throughout April and May.

Steel, who has 2,000 first-class runs to his name from 40 matches, is a product of Durham’s youth set-up and first burst onto the scene in 2017 aged just 21 when he became Durham’s youngest ever double-centurion, striking 224 against Leicestershire.

He scored 889 runs at an average of 40.86 in his impressive debut campaign, before also striking 638 runs the following season.

The right-hander has already featured for Hampshire Second XI in a friendly fixture so far this season, recording an excellent 134 at the top-of-the-order against a strong Surrey Second XI side.

There was an opportunity to bring Cameron in on loan and he fits very well with where we are at this point in time. He's an opening batsman with an appetite for runs and that should stand him in good stead.

Cameron will get an opportunity in the Second XI and that competition within the squad is a positive for us - there were other teams that were keen to have him so it's great that he's come here to Hampshire and we're really pleased to have him with us.

Giles White, Director Of Cricket
