Brad Taylor

Bowler

Brad Taylor is a right-arm spin bowler and right-handed batsman.

He was born in Winchester, Hampshire and is a product of Hampshire’s highly successful youth system.

After representing Hampshire’s youth squads as a youngster, Taylor first hit the headlines in 2013 at the age of 16 when he became the youngest player in 135 years to appear for Hampshire after being selected to play against Lancashire in List A and County Championship fixtures.

He continued to impress in 2014, featuring twice for the First XI but predominantly for the Second XI – something which saw him receive a call-up to the England U19s Test side for matches against South Africa.

At the end of the 2014 season, Brad was awarded a development contract for the 2015 season and after yet another promising season for the Second XI, he was selected to captain the England U19s on their winter tour to Sri Lanka. Continuing to develop his skills with bat and ball for the Second XI, Taylor featured in five T20 fixtures in 2016.

The off-spinner progressed further in the 2017 season, featuring against South Africa 'A' in a tour game as well as a County Championship game against Lancashire in June, whilst also contributing to the Hampshire Second XI throughout the season.

That winter saw the right-armer travel to New Zealand's North-Island city, Wellington, to play as the overseas professional for Petone Cricket Club and gain valuable experience in the southern hemisphere whilst working with former New Zealand spinner, Jeetan Patel.

Taylor made key contributions throughout Hampshire's triumphant 2018 50-over campaign the following season, before an ankle injury ended his season prematurely.

Following his recovery, he played a key role in the success of Hampshire Second XI in 2019, guiding the side to a T20 final and a Championship title, all whilst returning as a valuable part of the First XI set-up.

The COVID-19 pandemic combined with a minor injury caused Taylor to miss the 2020 season.
