Dom Sibley: Surrey batsman to join Warwickshire at end of 2017 season




Dom Sibley has featured in all of Surrey’s T20 Blast games this season, scoring 141 runs in six innings

Dom Sibley has told Surrey he will join Warwickshire at the end of the season after rejecting a three-year contract.

Batsman Sibley, who came through Surrey’s academy, was offered a new deal at the start of the season but has chosen to move to Edgbaston.

The 21-year-old has featured regularly in all three formats this season.

“He told me the reason he’s leaving is that he feels his opportunities at Warwickshire would be greater,” said director of cricket Alec Stewart.

Warwickshire are yet to announce the signing.

Sibley, who has scored four fifties in seven County Championship games this season, follows Adam Hose and Will Rhodes in choosing to join Warwickshire this summer.

The former England Under-19 batsman has scored 1,533 runs in 30 first-class games at an average of 34, with two hundreds.

“We’ve had numerous conversations with Dom and his advisors over the past 11 months and I’m comfortable in knowing that we could not have done any more in showing how much we wanted him to be a big part of this club,” Stewart added.

“We believe we were moving Dom in the right direction and are bitterly disappointed he has chosen to leave us at this stage of his career.”
