Test Career

William Somerville has taken 15 wickets in 4 Tests at 32.46. In his debut match against Pakistan held in Abu Dhabi in December 2018, Sommerville took 4/75 in Pakistan’s first-innings tally of 348 in reply to New Zealand’s score of 274. In their second knock, New Zealand made 353/7 declared. Chasing 280 to win, Pakistan collapsed to be all out for 156. Thanks to Sommerville’s bowling figures of 3/53, New Zealand earned a 123-run win. Against Sri Lanka in Galle in August 2019, New Zealand scored 249 in their first innings. Sommerville took 3/83 to help bowl out Sri Lanka for 267. However, in the 4th innings of the game, Sri Lanka chased down a winning target of 268 with 5 wickets to spare. In the next match of the series played in Colombo, the hosts batted first and scored 244, with Sommerville claiming 1/20. New Zealand responded with 431/6 declared before bowling out Sri Lanka for 122 in their second knock to help themselves to an innings victory, in which Sommerville’s bowling figures of 2/49 played an important role. Sommerville last appeared in a Test against Australia in Sydney in January 2020.
