Warwickshire Adds Richard Gleeson to 2024 T20 Blast Squad

2 min read

Richard Gleeson, the fast bowler who made his England debut at 34, has signed with Warwickshire for the 2024 T20 Blast after being released by Lancashire at the end of last season. At 36, Gleeson was enlisted into England’s T20I team 18 months ago and had an impressive debut at Edgbaston. After playing additional T20Is in 2022 and traveling to Australia with England’s T20 World Cup squad as a reserve, he is now set to call Warwickshire his home ground for the upcoming season. Gleeson has spent the last two years on a T20-only contract with Lancashire and was released due to a wrist injury. Injuries have forced him to operate as a freelancer for the last three years, including playing for various teams in T20 leagues around the world. Now, with Warwickshire, he has signed a one-year, white-ball contract with an option to extend. Gleeson’s signing with Warwickshire comes at a time when Henry Brookes has left for Middlesex on a three-year deal, leaving an opportunity for Gleeson to step in as a like-for-like replacement in their T20 side. Warwickshire is looking to build on their successful performance in the T20 Blast last year and hopes to achieve even greater success with Gleeson in their ranks.
