Tom Alsop Bio

Thomas Philip Alsop, better known as Tom Alsop, is an English cricketer who has shown immense potential throughout his career. Born on 15th October 1995, Alsop hails from Hampshire, England. From a young age, Alsop was identified as a future England player, and his journey in the world of cricket has been nothing short of remarkable.

Alsop’s cricketing journey began in the Hampshire youth system, where he showcased his talent and dedication to the sport. In May 2013, at the age of 17, he made an unexpected debut for the Hampshire first team as a wicketkeeper due to an injury to Adam Wheater. This glimpse into professional cricket only fueled Alsop’s passion for the game and motivated him to work even harder.

In 2014, Alsop made his first-class debut for Hampshire against Kent. Later that year, he played a crucial role in helping the team secure promotion in the final match in Cardiff. Alsop’s consistent performances also caught the attention of the England Under-19 squad, where he impressed with his skills during a series of strong performances.

Alsop shifted his focus from being a wicketkeeper to a top-order batsman, a decision that proved to be crucial for his career. He registered his maiden first-class century against Surrey at The Oval in 2016, a poignant moment dedicated to his fellow Hampshire opening batsman, Michael Carberry, who was battling cancer at the time. This century marked the beginning of Alsop’s upward trajectory, as he went on to score over 1200 runs in all formats that season, including a remarkable average of 54 in 50-over cricket.

The year 2017 presented its challenges for Alsop, with a lack of opportunities in the Championship leading to a two-season drought without a century. However, he made a strong comeback in 2019, recording a career-best score of 150 while keeping wicket against Warwickshire. Alsop’s impressive performances continued in the Royal London Cup, where he scored two centuries and helped Hampshire reach the final.

Alsop’s true breakthrough came in 2022 when he made a move to Sussex initially on loan, which later turned into a permanent deal. This change served as a turning point in his career, as he accumulated an impressive total of 930 runs in the Championship, including four centuries. Additionally, he amassed 318 runs in the Blast, becoming Sussex’s top scorer in the tournament. His outstanding form extended to the Royal London Cup, where he achieved a career-best unbeaten score of 189 runs.

Aside from his domestic success, Alsop’s performances did not go unnoticed on the international stage. He was called up for an England Lions tour of Sri Lanka, during which he partnered with Daniel Bell-Drummond to set a record Lions third-wicket stand of 200 runs.

Alsop’s career has been characterized by determination, resilience, and constant improvement. Although faced with challenges along the way, he has shown the ability to bounce back stronger than ever. As his journey continues, cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the next chapter of Tom Alsop’s remarkable career.
