Callum Parkinson loses Leicestershire Captaincy after refusing Contract Extension

Callum Parkinson lost Leicestershire Captaincy after declining to commit to a Contract Extension. Parkinson who took over the reins of Leicestershire Captaincy from Colin Ackermann in the mid of 2022 season is contracted with the club until 2023. However, Leicestershire said in a statement that Parkinson doesn’t consider himself to be in a position to accept any contract extension.

Thus the club has appointed Lewis Hill who has led the 50-over team in the Royal London Cup for two seasons as their Captain for County Championship 2023. “Whilst disappointed with the decision, Parkinson has offered his full support to Hill and the club,” Leicestershire’s said in a statement.

Coming to Parkinson, his contributions to the team couldn’t be ignored. He has scalped 50 wickets at an average of 29.04 in the County Championship 2021. He has also been a key player for Leicestershire in the T20 format & is the club’s all-time leading wicket-taker in the T20 format.

Claude Henderson, Leicestershire’s director of cricket, said, “Firstly, we want to congratulate Lewis on his new role. We have full belief in his abilities to lead Leicestershire to success moving forwards.

He further thanked Callum for his contribution to the 2022 Season & for supporting the club’s decision. Henderson also said that the club is disappointed with Parkinson’s resistance to committing to the club & will try to have conversations with him to ensure that he continues to be a part of Leicestershire.

Lewis Hill said, “It’s a really proud moment for me to be selected as captain of Leicestershire. I’ve loved my two seasons skippering the 50-over side, so I’m really excited for the challenge ahead.”

He further said that he wants to continue the phenomenal work which Callum has done for the club as a Captain in the 2021 season. Lewis Hill emphasized the fact that Parkinson will continue to be an integral part of their franchise & he will take his help whenever it’s essential.
