Thomas George "Tom" Helm (born 7 May 1994) is a cricketer who plays for Middlesex County Cricket Club.[1]

A fast bowler from Buckinghamshire, Helm signed for Middlesex in June 2012 when he was 18.[2]

Angus Fraser, Middlesex's Managing Director of Cricket, said of Helm's ​2 12-year contract deal:

"Tom is an exciting young fast bowler and we are delighted to have him on board. He is the fifth local boy we have signed in the past couple of years - Ravi Patel, Adam Rossington, Gurjit Sandhu and Ollie Wilkin are the others - and we hope that, along with these other cricketers, he will play a major role in Middlesex cricket in years to come.”[2]

He made his List A debut against Yorkshire in June 2013.[3] In a rain-affected match, he didn't bat and had yet to bowl before the match came to an early end. 3 days later, Helm played his second List A match against Unicorns where he took 3-27.[3] He suffered a stress fracture which prevented him from reaching his full potential as a youth cricketer.
