Horsham and Sussex hotshot George Garton has been named the 2019 Abu Dhabi T10 League Bowler of the Tournament.

The 22-year-old all-rounder took a competition-high 12 wickets in nine matches for Qalandars at the ten-over tournament.

The Lions and Sharks player averaged 13.66 and took a tournament best 3-10 against Northern Warriors on November 16.

Garton's Qalandars finished second in the Abu Dhabi T10 Super League and fourth overall.

Qalandars lost by just seven-runs to eventual winners Maratha Arabians on November 23 in the Qualifiers.

Garton finished the game with figures of 1-22, taking the wicket of former England international Adam Lyth (28 off 15 balls).

Qalandars were then beaten by six-wickets in the third-place playoff against Bangla Tigers a day later. Garton failed to take a wicket.
