West Indian pacer Fidel Edwards will miss Hampshire’s 2020 season. He will return to the club in 2021 for a testimonial match.
Edwards joined the club back in 2015 and has been a key player since then. He missed the 2016 season due to an injury but bounced back with an excellent 2017 season. He continued his excellent bowling spell during the next seasons also. The fast bowler picked up a total of 176 wickets across 4 seasons.
Giles White, Director of Cricket, said, “Circumstances have conspired against a return for Fidel and sadly, it may be that he has played his last game for the Club. Personally, I can’t speak highly enough of Fidel and the impact that he has had. He’s been an unbelievable player over his whole career but most recently with us.”

“We will miss him in every way, he’s been a great team mate and a wonderful performer, and we all look forward to welcoming Fidel back next year to pay tribute to his outstanding contribution to the Club,” he added.

 

“It’s a bit sad that my Hampshire career looks to be ending in these circumstances, during the pandemic, but there is a lot to celebrate and remember from my days at Hampshire. I want to thank all my team-mates and the staff at the club who have made me feel so welcome and of the course the supporters too,” said Fidel Edwards.

 

“I hope this isn’t it for me and county cricket, but for now I am proud to have pulled on the Hampshire shirt and look forward to returning for my testimonial match in 2021,” he added.
