Felix Spencer Organ, (550) born Sydney Australia, 2.6.1999.

Squad number 3

Although born in Australia to English parents, batsman and off-spinner Felix Organ went to school at Canford, Dorset and played for Hampshire’s age group sides throughout his teens. He made his 2nd XI debut in 2015 and towards the end of the 2017 season, made his first-class debut, scoring 16 v Middlesex in a low-scoring ‘relegation’ match at Uxbridge. In the winter of 2017/18, he played for Hampshire in four limited-overs matches in the Regional Super50 Tournament in the Caribbean – his only List A matches to date – and signed a new contract at the end of 2018. In 2019 he was the leading run-scorer in the Hampshire 2nd XI side that won the Championship (602 runs at 50.16), captaining the side in the winning Final. By then he had won a place opening the batting in the first team, scoring his first Championship century, v Kent, and adding two half-centuries. In addition he bowled occasionally, and in a victory against Surrey took 5-25. It was a promising start but in 2020 he experienced the ‘difficult second season’, in the Bob Willis Trophy he played in all five matches but with a best of just 16 and an average of 8.57, although his 4-42 v Middlesex helped Hampshire to victory. 2020 was his first season playing for Hampshire in T20 matches; he scored 21 runs in three innings, and took 2-21 v Middlesex.

His figures for Hampshire:

First-class: 12 matches; 376 runs at 19.78; HS: 100 v Kent (Southampton) 2019. 15 wickets, BB 5-25 v Surrey (Southampton) 2019.

List A: 4 matches; 0 runs. Two wickets; BB 1-6 v CC&C (Lucas Street, West Indies) 2017/18 

T20: 3 matches; 21 runs at 7.00; HS 9. Three wickets; BB 2-21 v Middlesex (Southampton) 2020.
